cannot delete files from comuter

Hi i downloaded 2movie files with the avi extension, but now i cannot move, rename or delete them, they will not even play and instead a random music file in my folder will play instead. i ran malware programs, antivirus programs, used hijack this, trying to delete them and other force delete programs. I used command prompt and even booted in with a Linux disk, tried file shredding software and still cannot delete the files. One can see them, but when you want to delete them you get message like, not valid file or file name, file cannot be found etc,so i am worried is it, say a Trojan, how can I delete them, they take up about 2gb space on my hard disk. Thanks
