Probably they are in the build directory. Basically pdb files contain debugging informations and they are not essential in case you are not going to debug your application. Creation of pdf files can be disabled in the project configuration and usually it is for the default Release configuration.
Why do they bother you?

Hi,

Go to Properties->Build. Click on the "Advanced..." button. Change "Debug Info" into "none".

Hope this helps.
