Some Album art images have somehow saved themselves as a hidden system file. How do I delete it?

You can view hidden system files: My Computer > tools > folder options > view. Check "hidden files and folders" and uncheck "hide protected operating system files (recommended)". Now you can delete the files.

Note: Be careful not to delete real system files or you end up with troubles. There is a good reason why these files are kept hidden. After the operation check again "hide protected operating system files (recommended)".
