Log into your system as administrator, and try that. Which files are you wanting to delete?

I will want to know what those files are. If those are important system files, they should not be deleted.

Otherwise, you may have a try with Unlocker.

Edit : Now I know that those are adobe files. What does that mean ? Files in adobe's installation directory ? Or files generated by adobe programs ?

For first option right, dont delete please.
For second option right, if a restart does not work, go for Unlocker .
