Default Files LOCKED!!! PleaseHelp !

It all happened the day when I interrupted a file transferring process in the Adobe Bridge application. The files were transferring to a wrong destination and it was halted by exitiing with the "X" was pressed on the upper right hand corner.

Anyway, all the files now in the folder has become unreadable (Images and PowerPoint) , unmoveable. Whenever I tried to move it, the warning box prompted Access denied will shown. They can't be attached to any email or transfer to a disc or whatsoever.

WHAT can I do to unlock these files, or are they all dead already?

Adobe Bridge has been uninstalled.

I really dun get it how is that Unlock fucntion is hsown after I right clicking it. The file is automaticallu defaulted in "Read Only" Even after changing it, the file remains read only. Does it mean that these files are all screwed and I better delete them all?

I solve it myself!!!!!! I did it by removing the stranger ownership(should be a code lefted by the Adobe Bridge) on the security tab when I right click the file undeer properties.
