let this utility do the job for you.

After installation, right click on each of the files, and click on remove on reboot.

Restart the computer and tap the F8 button to go into safe mode. Using explorer (Windows Key + E) just navigate to the files and delete them as if you were in normal mode. Empty your recycle bin and reboot in normal mode.

Nice Link Joe R - wonder how this was resolved though? Did they use your tool or my method?
