Cannot Delete Files

XP SP3.

Was having a clear out of old files from my PC.

I'm left with two folders each containing Word .docs and .pdf's which won't delete. Each folder reads 0kb but the files (although they can't be moved, renamed, launched or edited) do show that they have a size. Also, the contents don't show in Safe Mode.

Easiest way to remove them?
