Random String Files in WMC7

Hi guys, new here. ANyways let me get to the meat of it.

I have Windows 7 obviously and I use Media Center alot. However after some movies I watch I get these random string files that show up in the Movies section. All of my movies are dvd back ups nothing downloaded. Also I believe these files to be place markers for movies I do not finish because when I click on them it takes me to the chapter I left off. WHat's annoying is that they take up a lot of visual space and I can't simply delete them. Deleting them does absolutely nothing. Anybody here seen or heard of this?
