Try rebooting after deleting - they may need to be deleted using Ad-Aware's boot cleaner. Then reopen Ad-Aware to see if the quarantine list has changed - in a prior version, I recall there was a problem with the GUI not changing until Ad-Aware was closed and reopened.

Thanks for the version number. I've reported this to Lavasoft as a bug to see if they can replicate the problem. You might want to try posting in the HijackThis forum (instructions in my signature) to see if you have other infections which may be preventing deletion of the files.
