My binaries Usenet reader downloaded a dozen Usenet
trojan/virus/spyware, these files are all 100Kb .exe (faked as .avi),
of course I am not going to open them, I only want to delete them from
the system and everytime I try I get a message saying I do not have
permission to do this.

I attempted to change ownership of the file rigth clicking, and it will
not allow me to change it, I have tried using a program such as Eraser
to overwrite them, again no permission.

I have not been infected but I can't delete the files from the system,
what do you suggest I do now?
