my friends used my computer and downloaded these shhits.
now i cant delete it, move it, rename it.
my main objective is to delete it.

when i right click, there is no delete option, copy or cut.
it shows, "play in winamp","enque in winamp","Add to winamp's bookmark list","open","add to sync list","add to burn list","open with" and "send to" .
this are the options when i right click on the video.

as for the picture file, its, "preview","open","edit with fireworks","print","edit","rotate clockwise","rotate counter clockwise","set as desktop background","open with" and "send to".

i really want to delete them off my computer.

Did you try dragging them into your recycle bin? Yah, I know... that would be too easy.

How about creating a new folder on your desktop, dragging all the files into the folder, then deleting the entire folder.

Ok...

Are your context menus correct for other files? What I mean is the "delete" option available for other files excecpt the ones you're having problems with?

You might try deleting them while in Safe mode. Restart, repeatedly hit the F8 key before the windows splash screen, then choose Safe mode.
