MP3 files will not delete

  1. I recently started to clean up my computer, removing unwanted files and such.

    I started cleaning up my desktop and I found 3 mp3 files on my desktop, I tried to play them to see what they were and they didn't play. I went to the properties of it and they contain no data.
    Here is the properties of one of the files.

    I have sent them to my Recycle Bin by dragging them and then I would empty it seconds after, where they seem to delete successfully. They will remain gone until I restart my computer.

    Is there anything I can do to get them out of there?

    zero kb may mean the song is actually not on your computer !!
    Which means it might be comming from one of those sharing download manager programs like BitTorrent

    I suggest you check what programs you can clean up (I mean remove) too

    I did try to rip 2 of the mp3s from a flv file, so its not from a program, but I think my brother got the Effiel one from a Fileshare.
