I have some files on my external HDD that became corrupted and thus I can't delete, move, rename them, or anything through Windows, not even through a prompt. I need an app that can get rid of them, something quick and light. Suggestions?

Well, why not just:
FDISK, Format

Alt 1:
McAfee Shredder

ALt 2:
I think there's a shredder in Spybot Search & Destroy.

Killbox might be able to do it. I know it's good at deleting spyware files, but I don't know how well it does with corrupted files.

Or if that doesn't work, try scandisk/chkdsk on the drive to fix the file structure and then see what you can do.
