do it via safe mode as windows 7 in normal mode has permissions set up to secure the desktop even in uac disbaled I fix mine by adding my account to the security of the c: drive while in safe mode

you can still boot from a live knoppix cd to delete those :  ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/dist/knoppix/KNOPPIX_V6.4.4CD-2011-01-30-EN.iso

but as i said  - they are 0 byte long - so best run chkdsk on the drive first
