Cannot delete file

My son has downloaded 2 porn files one is a compressed folder the other a movie clip, I am unable to delete them in the normal way the error message says, Cannot delete file. The filename specified is invalid or too long. specify a different filename. Can anyone tell me how to delete these files. Cheers.

Try to delete in safe mode (Tap F8 when restarting the computer)
