Hey vic

Where are these files located? Is there anything in Add/Remove Programs?
Have you tried to delete while in Safe mode?

You may want to Download / Install / Update / and Run:

SpyBot  
And:
Adaware SE

Let us know

I don't think you want to erase the whole hard drive. I'm sure we can get them removed.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall Bearshare.
After you do that go to C:/Windows/Program Files/Bearshare and delete the whole folder if it's there.
Also I would suggest that you Download / Install / Update / and Run:

SpyBot
