Can't delete files in My Documents creates copies!

Hi everyone
I never seen this problem I hope you can help.
A friend of mine is having trouble deleting files within her My Documents folder. When we try deleting them after asking "do you want to send selected item to recycle bin" instead of deleting them creates copies of them!
For example say the file we want to delete called home.doc, if we try deleting it, leaves the original as it is but also creates a copy of it called "copy of home.doc", and if you try delete this, it creates "copy of copy of home.doc"! We tried deleting them in Safe Mode without luck also.
I tried helping her over the phone but I am really puzzled!
I have a feeling she changed a setting somewhere or something like that. Or may be a virus or spyware stuff, although she does use antivirus and antispyware programs.
She is using Windows XP Home.
Thank you for your assistance.
