I had the exact same problem as well, I've always hated secuROM.
To fix it just navigate to the folder the weird file names are in using a command prompt. Once you're in that folder just "del *.*" and it'll fry the two offending files, bizzare filenames or not. Then you can kill the folders normally in Windows.
