Copy the file name. In the command window right click then paste.

There is nothing below the "Send to" option, not "Properties", not nothing.

What happens if you Open the .jpg?

Is there a Bar of Icons at the bottom of the Screen. Try the "Red X" if there is one.

What format are the pictures in ie jpg, bmp, tiff, gif? What program are you viewing them with. If trying to delete them and windows is preventing you, try deleting in safe mode, that usually works for most files.
Some pictures can contain a virus that would prevent them being deleted in normal mode, have virus scans detected anything? If a pic does contain a virus then the virus is usually activated when the pic is opened in a pic viewer, the pic then becomes associated with that virus and in normal mode will prevent deletion. If it is a virus then it may well be in the system restore files and the only way to eradicate would be to virus scan with system restore being turned off. and then the pics deleted. This is more easily done in safe mode.
