Can't show or delete specially hidden files

October 17, 2011 at 18:51:41
Specs: Windows XP, Mobile AMD Semperon Processer 3500+ 1.80 GHz, 1.87 GB Ram
I used a program called "free hide a folder" to hide some folders and files. I later thought I deleted those hidden files, but yesterday, while doing a virus scan I noticed that the virus scan was scanning over 15 gigs of files I had deleted. Yet when I slect "show hidden files" they do not show up. Yet if I change the main folder to "hidden" it changes 15 gigs of files that are not supposed to be there. How do I get these specially hidden files to show again? I tried using the "free hide a folder" program but it won't let me unhide these files. Are there any tricks to unhiding these kinds of files?
