files will not delete

I keep trying to delete some files which I have downloaded (Big Fish Games files). However instead of them beind deleted I end up with a copy of the file. If I delete the copy I get another copy of the copy so am creating more and more files. I feel my computer is being invaded by aliens! Any ideas how I can overcome this?

Highlight whatever you want to delete and then hold down Shift and press Del on the keyboard.

Try deleting them in Safe Mode, or try Ulocker

Also does Big Fish Games appear in Add / Remove programs?

May be worth creating a folder, putting all the files in it and deleting the folder.(By dragging it to the Recycle bin) . Others here will no doubt point to special software for this problem.

Many thanks - I tried John Bunyan's idea first and it worked!
