If you are attempting to delete a very large group of files manually, this will overtax the delete function and cause it to stall. You can, of course, manually delete around 100 files at a time in each folder, or use the MS Disk Cleanup utility that comes with Windows.

If that doesn't work try deleting them one at a time until you make the file small enough.
