I am trying to clean out my files/folders in "My Documents" but they immediately reappear.  Is there a way to stop this?

SS the folder i wanna see the names of the files. Have you tried to delete the files in Safe-Mode?

Do you by any chance use OneDrive to sync files ?  There is a topic somewhere in the Windows section,about 2 or 3 weeks old now, where OneDrive was causing exactly this problem. Because the file were backed up to OneDrive and synced, every time they were deleted they re-appeared !

 

Failing that, try Ron's suggestion of deleting them in Safe Mode - tap the F8 key a few times while the BIOS screen is showing, then select 'Safe mode with networking'.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

Check for a virus or malware. Is your recycle bin empty?
