I needed to download some movie clip files for work and they got corrupted. When I go to my documents and try and delete them they just stay there. and when you double click on them, right click to delete, press delete, try to rename, anything, it just doesnt do anything. please help. thanks

Try this:
Create a new folder,drag and drop the files into in and then delete the new folder.
If that doesn't work:
Try to drag and drop the files to the desktop and delete them from there.
If that doesn't work:
Check the Task Manager to see if there are any processes that could be locking the files.
If that doesn't work:
Check to see if the files are listed in the History of the player that you used to play them,if so delete player history then try to delete the files.
Do you have a restore point from before you downloaded the files?
Can you give me the exact error message and your OS?

If that doesn't work:
Check the file properties and make sure that "Read only" is not checked.
If that doesn't work:
Try the above again form safe mode or from the Administrator account
