try this

hit alt-crtl-del and see if it's running, if it is, end task
then try to delete, if that doesn't work,reboot, find the file/s and delete again.

hope that helps

Can you rename these files?

If you can rename them, you might be able to delete them then.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
