HELP! Calling all computer gurus!

Hi, all--have a question for you: I use a MacBook at home and a Windows XP at school. I have an external hard drive, and when I copy things from my MacBook to my Windows, I see a lot of these types of files:

.* (no prefix--just files that look more faint than "real" files).

When I search for these and then try to delete them, my external hard drive won't delete them. Any advice for how to get rid of them or for what causes them? Thanks!
