System Restore backup files

I accidentally fudged a bunch of drivers on my PC, so I did a system restore with backup. Now, i've moved all of the backup files back to where they belong in my documents, but the original backup files are still in C:/, and they're eating about 40gb or my hard drive space. Every time I try to delete them it tells me my access is denied, and changing the folders and files from read-only to normal also results in an access denied message. I'm using Windows XP Media Center Edition.

Anyone tell me how to get rid of them?

    Sorry, it wasn't a system restore, it was the Gateway System Recovery
