u need to delete them manually i gues from the VSS... and next time when u add a porject instead of adding thru the vss which will again cause this problem..use add project to VSS option from VS
In visual studio right click the bin folder and select "Exclude from Project".  This will mean the folder and all it's contents are not included in the project and so will not be under source control. Generally I don't include the bin folder in the solution but it can be helpful on occasion.

You can also use the "Show all files" button at the top of the solution explorer to display all files in the structure so that you can add them to the project in a similar way.

Thanks Mate
You may want to consider cloaking.  

I wish we could get a comprehensive solution from Microsoft because there are times that it does come in handy...
