They are associated with a program that is still running. If you re-boot, they will either be gone or they will be able to be deleted

As above except if you can't remove them after reboot, try ooting in safe mode or using the task manager to shut down all running processes.

Hello there,

There is a program that is currently running on the background. You do not mention what OS you're running, if you're using Windows 95/98/ME/2000 then you can reboot and try on safe mode, if still it doesn't work then with the task manager stop all the programs you don't need at this point and then try to delete the files, if still doesn't work then let me know and I will help you.

Good luck,
