Are the files flagged as read-only?

This kinda thing drives me up the wall! Try re-booting and then attempting to del them.

What are these files? Programs or data?

If a .exe is running as a system process it cannot be deleted. But you can end the process in task manager and then delete..

Also, if you have any process, like Explorer, accessing those directories, you won't be able to delete them.

do other people use your computer? some files, if done correctly using window's cipher encryption thing, can make it so admin cannot see them, even for a lower level user.

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode? Two reasons for this, less processes which might lock files, and also in XP Home, logged in as Administrator in Safe Mode, you can access the Security tab under Properties and make sure that you don't have the wrong permissions.
