Why do deleted files keep reappearing?

Hi!  I have a HP Pavilion dv7 computer running with windows 7.  Often when I delete a file (both in my pictures and my documents) the file will reappear sometime later.  I have emptied out the recycle bin after doing the deletion.  Files can return weeks or months after they have been deleted.   Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance!!

Do you have some sort of Security software installed that is preventing full deletion?

Hmmm... I never thought of that before.  I have Kaspersky virus software.  I will have to look into that.

Thanks...
