    Try this then:

    Start
    Run
    Enter 'cmd /k' (no quotes)
    Enter 'cd\' (will get you the C:\ prompt)
    Enter 'cd\(path) where path is the path to the folder where the stubborn mpeg's are, eg, C:\BadPictures
    Enter 'dir /w'
    If you can see the item, Enter 'erase [filename]'

    If you had a folder to delete, you would use 'rmdir [folder name]'
