    Can't delete files/folders

    I have extracted some emulation files into my internal G: drive, and I decided they aren't what I needed and tried to delete them. Most of the files deleted but I have 3 folders and several files that will not delete. I can't delete the files (which have no extension), nor can I delete the folder they are in:

    G:\Downloads\Various Files\1\A\lev1.
    G:\Downloads\Various Files\2\BATMAN
    G:\Downloads\Various Files\3\BATMAN

    I have files lev1. to lev5., and those 2 BATMAN files. None have extensions, and I can't rename the files. The lev.1-5 files end with a period, and the BATMAN files end with several spaces afterwards. I have no idea how to delete these. I can't even delete the main Downloads folder. I tried wiping the files, with no luck. And I even tried Malwarebytes' FileAssasin, but it couldn't see the files to load them. I can rename the folders but not the files themselves.

    What can I do?

    EDIT: Nevermind - IObit Unlocker to the rescue!
