Windows XP Update Files

When automactic updates kick in, it is placing rogue files on my E:\ partition of my h/d. I have tried deleting them as the folders are random letters and number combinations. When I try to delete these hiles, it says 'Accessed Denied' I have unticked the folder options to set read only ticked off, and and able to rename these files, but unable to delete.

Anyone have a solution???

Can you boot into safe mode and delete them? I generally have various folders like that and they delete ok after a reboot.

Yeah I have tried deleting them from 'Safe Mode' but to no avail
