Windows 7: I can't remove files from my OLD XP

First, I'm using Win7
And I'm sure it technically doesn't matter whether what type it is, seriously.
I forgot the real file name (+extension), but there were even executable files.
They're program and personal files.

@theog - That isn't practical really. It doesn't make sense if when he wanted to just delete a regular file he would have to boot up the Recovery Console just to do so.

OP is not deleting a regular file.
This a non-regular file, which will not delete, when Windows is boot up.
