Hi Akis,
You cannot delete those from Prod, if those are of no use, comment the codes in Sandbox and deploy it to Prod.

Hi Danish,
unfortunately this is an issue. a previous developer named a class as test. even if I comment out everything, when I try to install a pacakge on the production, the name Test is detected and the package cannot be installed. An indicative example of the error i get:

TestAccountQuickContactController: Method does not exist or incorrect signature: void startTest() from the type Test
