    Try booting up in safe mode and deleting them then.

    open nero (or any other program that doesnt use the explorer file browser system)
    open taskmanager
    go to the processes tab
    select explorer.exe, and end it, close taskmanager
    goto nero, look for the file and delete it
    hit windows button+r
    type "explorer", and hit "ok"
    great FTP site for awesome quality video clips
    yeah, you have to sign up, but its worth it

    for the film go here and follow the instructions. It wont delete cos its corrupt and windows has a bug of trying to preview entire corrupt video files which leads to u not being able to delete them. Use the reg entry in the above thread

    for the other one, follow the other posts advice
    Shut that cuntís mouth or Iíll come over there and fuckstart her head.

    Thanks for the adviceStorm, I managed to delete the movie file however the mp3 file will n ot delete. I tried using nero and following your advice however every time I put the cursor over the file windows closes down.
    We have norton anti virus which advised that we have ( hoi 40.tmp w32.pinfi(virus) It said it is in quarantine as it can't be deleted.
    Windows microsoft advised that we had w32/pate.b.worm virus.
    Any acvice would be welcome.
