Hmmm, well, you can't exactly delete your root directory. Not without wiping the whole partition clean and then *not* reformatting it. The "root" directory is just the top level directory on your JB - if you click on the drive letter in your file manager (windows explorer?) then you'll be looking at the contents of the root directory.

If you are a Windows user, the easiest way is to download the Windows Installer from the Downloads page. Run it and follow the instructions.
