Cannot delete file in windows 7. It sits on showing "discovering items"

I have two files in Videos folder of Documents. Both files are over 4.0GB in size. I cannot delete them. Whenever I try to delete, the dialogue box with discovering items shows up and keeps showing the same until I cancel. It also makes laptop slow even after cancellation. I tried cmd->dir. One file is listed in dir but the other is not. I have some other files of similar size. they are fine.
