a quick fix is to create a new user account with admin privileges and log into it then go to the user accounts in the control panel and DELETE the account and say yes to deleting the files too..

and wait for a response.
You probably don't want to move the files back to the desktop, there's no point to it, it won't achieve anything. If you want the files deleted and doing so screws something up, it'll be the same result if they were deleted off the desktop. As to what they are, if I had to guess, they're recovered files from whatever process TestDisk ran to recover either a lost partition or files, and it's either protecting them or you recovered an entire installation of XP or the like and now you're experiencing file corruption. If you can't delete them in safemode, and if Unlocker won't work, they're locked down hard. I would have recommended both Unlocker and Safe Mode, so when I read that you couldn't delete using either I was surprised. You probably have to get completely outside Windows to trash this folder, e.g. boot to a command prompt using various methods and run a del /s command. But is this install really necessary? And are you ever really going to trust it? Why not just back up your important files and run a format and recovery?

BUT if the folder is actually needed by windows and you delete it you WILL have to reinstall windows...
