Right, i try to delete some files and folders from my desktop, and they successfully go after emptying my recycle bin, but as soon as i reboot/ start up the computer again they suddenly re-appear again???
I am running Windows 7 RC 32 bit, and i am the administrator.
If i move them to another location they just go right back to the desktop.
Anything else you need info about?

I have an idea that the these files are automatically generated by a program installed on your computer.
Would you mind telling me which program is set to start with Windows 7?
(To view the list, press Win Key+R, type msconfig, and click on the tab "Startup".)
Actually I don't think it's a bug.
It seems that the only way to show if there's a program preserves these files is that you reboot your PC to safemode, delete these files and reboot to safemode again to see if the files still exist.
I'm really sorry for not finding a better idea.
That worked! The files are now deleted, but I'm not sure whether the problem is fixed. I haven't tested whether i can delete any other files normally (Because i especially don't wanna have to always go into safe mode just to delete a file).
This may be a bit of help, recently i have been having problems with logging in... I get stuck on the Welcome screen, i left it for half an hour once and it was the same so i just held the power button down and turned it off... The same situation with Logging off, it sometimes gets stuck on the Logging off status bit, so i just held down the power button and turned it off.
Well, since these files can be deleted under SafeMode, it means that there's a program (Not Windows itself) fixing these files. Hmm, have you backed these files up with True Image?
As for Welcome Screen, there's some known reasons:
1. Kaspersky Anti-Virus (It's not the key to your problem, because you are using Morro)
3. Compatibility Problems
In my opinion, the 3rd reason fits best to your problem.
Acronis True Image backs up my Desktop, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos every half hour to another partition (E:/):
Windows explorer just crashed and came up with Windows Visual Studio or something as the title window, show blacked out details...
... and it also popped up with 2 windows explorer windows
I closed the visual studio window and it crashed windows explorer, i had to restart it by task manager. It might have happened when i went to open up a backup, because once i did my whole computer started to go slow.
ADD THEM TO A NEW FOLDER, NAME IT, THEN TRY THIS:
I really sought out many versions of help with removing folders that were not found in my C:/ Drive and found a much simpler way, of course with the help of other postings...
Now, I don't know if it will work for everybody but it certainly worked for me. What I did was very simple.
I created a new folder (did not named it) and just dragged it over to the trouble folder.
Now this part can be very tricky because a duplicate folder may apprear. If this happens delete the old folder and keep the new one that appears.
Then create a new folder (no need to name it) and drag it over to the "New" Trouble Folder.
Then you'll notice that it will accept the un-named drop in folder and Whalla.....Now You Can Delete The Folder And No More Nightmares..!!!!
