I had a similar problem awhile back.
I eventually deleted the files using Malware Bytes.Part of that program is called(from Memory) File Assassin.

thanks.downloaded malwarebytes.scanning now.What files did you delete Phil.

I was a while ago now.It was some obscure file I had not created or knowingly downloaded.Trying to delete it told me I was not the administrator and it could not be altered or deleted.Malware Bytes eventually allowed me to delete it.
