Default Cannot Delete file!

I've got a couple of incomplete files that I tried downloading from Limewire. They are video files (not sure what format) and they haven't affected my computer performance in any way. The only strange thing is that when you right click on them there is no 'delete' option, and if you click on the file and push the 'delete' key on the keyboard it say's that it cannot be deleted. As I said, they haven't affected my computer in any way but I simply wish to get rid of them!

Thanks

google for "moveonboot" and install it. Then just drag and drop the files you want deleted and it will remove them on the next boot .
