Google "Molly bolt" to see what you are dealing with. I have done all three in order of ease.

1) If they are recessed a little just patch over.
2) Drill the heads off with a drill slightly larger than the hole. and leave the rest in.
3) Put the screw in a few threads , then tap to straighten. Wiggle and pull it out.

I have had nothing but bad luck with this type of anchor if you try to pull them out it usually takes a chunk of drywall with it. I have not tried drilling them out, but I will.

I knock them through, tape and a couple of coats of mud over the holes, sand, and you're good to go...
