need to delete files without having to reboot

Hi, I'm trying to completely delete an old profile from Win2003 Srvr, and it won't fully delete.  Since this is our main server and still during business hours I don't want to reboot/remove in safe mode.  I've already verified that all processes running are legitmate; no viruses, no spyware.  The profiles are stored on an external HDD. The files that remain are:

BRNDLOG.TXT
BRNDLOG.BAK  -- these were found in F:\Home\Username\Profile\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

also:
bookmarks.bak
bookmarks.html -- these were found in F:\Home\Username\Profile\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\opwy1sur.default
