Hi and welcome to Just Answer. I am sorry to hear about your computer problems.
Quickly tell me what you are doing to delete files. How do you do it?
Ok. That is wierd.
Create a new folder and drag the photos you don't need over to the new folder.
Then delete the folder.
That will get rid of the photos.
I would then look through your PC for any signs of photo management software, especially Kodak. That is what usually causes this problem. It is preventing accidental deletion.
I will be here if you have a follow up comment or question.
