pictures which will not delete they copy instead

I have some jpeg pictures in my documents folder but when I try to delete them they just copy. I now have 99 copies. Do you have any idea why this is happening? How do I delete them they already exist in My pictures folder?

If XP. Open the folder, highlight the file, and click the 'delete this file' optin on the left. You will need to confirm

I have XP with service pack 3. I have highlighted and pressed delete but it copies. I have highlighted gone to file and delete but it copied. As I highlight it seems to copy i.e if I go to the end of the folder and highlight, copies appear underneath as I highlight

Does this only happen with the JPeg files? No other files?
