deleted files keep coming back

Specs: Windows XP
I have 4 jar files, autorun.inf, and a hidden&read only folder that keep coming back after I deleted them. They are in my usb (removable disk). They seemed to be deleted, but when I unplugged and then plug the usb again, all the files are back.

You have a virus. Delete the autorun file and then create an autorun.inf FOLDER.
Be sure to put an autorun.inf folder on every usb device you have and anyone's that you know of.

Then see if it fixed the file deal. You then need to get rid of the virus.

I've tried deleting the autorun.inf file, but it says "Cannot delete AUTORUN : Access is denied". I've tried right click>properties>attributes, uncheck the boxes. Moving the file to new folder (autorun)...None of these work. I've scanned it, tried deleted them from other devices (2 mobile phones)....tadaaa...those files remain. I know I can buy a new one, but I can't sleep if I can't fix something..hahaha, not until I've tried everything :) thanks
