Deleting documents from WORD files

I downloaded files from the internet and used WORD to open 
them, thus the files are now in the WORD "file" folder.
I have tried just about everything to delete them.  They 
are listed as Document 1, Document 2, and Document 3.
Please help me to delete these files.
 Thank  you

3.Error when deleting temp files: Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source

From what I've been reading, Office creates temp files to 
your hard drive for the documents you open in office. 
Once, you close the file, the temp file should be 
deleted, however, mine are not.

I size of the temp directory that has been holding 
these "temp" files has grown to 112MB. When I try to 
delete the files I receive the following error, Cannot 
delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk.

Any thoughts on how to get rid of these files?
Any advice is appreciated.

5.delete files from "open a document" in Word?

Does anybody know how (or if it even is possible) to 
delete the documents that are shown under the "open a 
document" menu to the right when you start Word in XP?

(The menu works like a "recent documents" menu, but I 
cannot find a way to delete the links to the files that I 
recently used.)
