Try deleting these files in safe mode which should not load this ap with Windows.
To access safe mode reboot and start tapping F8 as soon as the bios begins posting and before the Starting Windows screen starts.
Also, consider Windows XP has a mass renaming tool which you can use to eliminate file names that are too long.
This tool enables you give a group of files a common name with sequential numbering.
Open Windows Explorer and select the files you want to rename. (highlight them)
Then press F2 (or right-click on the selection and choose Rename).
Then type the name you want the first file in the batch to have.
Example: Cobian (1).
Windows will give the same filename to the remaining files in the selection, incrementing the number to Cobian (2), Cobian (3), etc.
You can undo the change if you need or want to by clicking on "Edit" and then "Undo".
