More Information Is Needed

Which version of Vista? How much RAM is installed? Which antivirus/security programs do you have installed? Do they have "shredder" programs which take much longer to delete files? Tried disabling such programs to test whether they are the culprit?

Have you tried deleting such files which in Safe Mode, and if so, does the same thing happen?

Hope this helps and let us know more....
