    i downloaded some pictures in a rar file
    i managed to shred all of them except a few
    in the shredder, these pictures are marked with - read-only, hidden, system

    i can delete them and they go into the recycle bin, but can't shred them

    i think this could be some type of malware. Can you help out?
    any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
    i hope i don't have to do a system recovery....


    thanks.
