Windows 7: Deleted files still appear in explorer resources

Deleted files still appear in explorer resources

About 10 days ago I deleted two .avi files from my PC, and yet they continue to reappear in the folder where they were originally stored. When I try to delete them again, I am told that they cannot be found, so they actually have been deleted. Is there any way to get rid of the entries completely?

explorer.exe eating up resources
Explorer is eating up about 70% of my processor usage, all the time. If I disable it through the task manager's resource monitor, the desktop is unusable. What can I do to free more of my CPU when I need it? I run Windows 7 on a Dell Precision T3500 workstation that is a little sluggish. Thanks...
