Can you be more descriptive?

Was your operating system installed when you got the computer, or did you install it yourself?

Can you take screen shots and post them?

Post back with some more information, because they could very well be just regular files.

Are those files causing your computer to mis-behave? If not, goto your Add/Remove Programs and see if any of them are listed in there. If you don't need them, delete them. If they're not listed there, then you need to take inventory of all programs installed on your computer and see if those files relate to them. If none of the programs installed are related to the files you have, then it would be safe to remove the files.

BACKUP your data 1st.... even the files you're going to remove.... just in case something goes wrong.
