I can't read you screenshot and clicking on the link did not open it in another Window to view it. As long as you are sure the files are malicious you can try this:

Please download FileASSASSIN FA_Portable.zip and save to your desktop.
  • Create a new folder on your C:\ drive called FileASSASSIN and extract (unzip) the file to that folder. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure. Win 9x/2000 users click here.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on FileASSASSIN.exe.
    Note: If you downloaded the installable version instead, just double-click on fa-setup.exe to install and then launch FileASSASSIN from the program folder.
  • Select the bad file to delete by dragging it onto the text area or select it using the (...) browse button.
  • Select a removal method. Start with the default "Attempt FileASSASSIN's method of file removal"
  • Click delete and the removal process will begin.
  • If that did not work, start the program again, select the file(s) the same way as before and this time check "Use delete on reboot function from windows."

Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to move highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system.

-- If the file(s) returns, then you probably have other malware on your system which is protecting or regenerating it.
