How to delete these files?

If I try to delete them an error message "Could not find this item" would show up.
If I right click the files, it would say in their properties that the size is 0 bytes but in detailed view of the folder, they have sizes in KB. How do I delete them?

Please give us in which folder you wants to delete and what are the names of the files. It is important for the forum members to know these details for helping you.

I had that kind of thing a while back and found Killbox.

You can read about it and download it at CNET.

KillBox - CNET Download.com

I'm not sure why some poeple had trouble with it. I didn't.

Oh, I had this problem a while ago, the fix I used was to move the folder to public documents then create a new user account. Log onto the new user account and then move it into the users documents. Then go back to you're main account and delete the other user that has the files that wont delete on it. This worked for me, I hope it works for you!
Good Luck
