Mega strange folders & files created

Hi,

Some time ago I installed L.O. Portable 3.3.0 on USB.
It seems to have created a big troop of files & folders in:
G:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable_3.3.0\LibreOfficePortable\Data\temp\svp.tmp

I cannot delete them because they all contain "forbidden" characters like /\:*?"| and more of that.
Windows file manager says: 'Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk'
Also their filesize and dates of modification are absurd (some are of 1601/01/01 !)
Does anyone know how to delete them ?

(installation of L.O. 3.3.3 was seemlessly)

thanks

Linux

There are likely a variety of other solutions (I can think of a few), but I'd bet that you could delete them without any problem if you were using Linux, so I'll recommend you burn a CD of a LiveCD Distribution of Linux which you can then boot your PC to and delete the files from there. (I personally recommend SLAX, but you can use any Linux LiveCD you want)
