if you are sure, these are just 1 VM, Remove from Inventory.

also it can help if you logon direct to ESXi hosts, and remove from Inventory there.

Are they are tasks in progress on the VMs, like vMotion, Storage vMotion ?

Time to start vCenter Server, and then Network Management Agents on Host

the above will not affect running VMs.
