Default WIN Prefetch - Problem

Hi,
I just got a problem on "Prefetch" file on the Windows system I have version "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1.2600". What happen was that I saved two files by mistake (to there) and now I can't erase them.

The two files are
1. BLOGS FILEW and
2. KEFB200.G AUDIO SPEAKERS

Layout is the only one that belongs there.

Thanks in advance for your time,
Monteiro.

Have you restart? Have you gone into Safe Mode?

Hi, and thanks Makaveli213.
I went to SAFE MODE and look arround to DEL those files (DIRs or empty folders of mine). I can't do it and I post also the pic from the CMD Command Prompt window. What should I do next?
It just doesn't let me delete those folders or (RD) "remove dir" them.

Note: For Safe Mode I used the System Config Utility, that works great for me:

Try to google for a program called ForceDelete. See if that can do it for you.

I was not able to delete any directories, so then I went to this website, after looking for a while.

There, there is this util. file "Unlocker" were I was able to Rename (the files) and to Move them out.

Arrow Re: WIN Prefetch - Problem

After all, I couldn't delete.
Only rename and move it out of the way.
I also used the other software on "PC H" website, "killbox". I just placed them, the two empty files/directories I can not delete in another dump file out of the way. Thanks Makaveli213, if you know anything else...
