    First of all can you please specify what Operating System have you installed in your pc? Also, it will be appreciated if you can also tell us your computer specifications. Also, it might be a virus issue, so have you tried to scan your pc with any antivirus software? Check for updates in both programs before scanning your computer. Let us know your results.

    Re: i cant empty my recycle bin

    To fix this problem, follow these steps to regenerate the Recycle Bin folder by using the command prompt:
    1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
    2. Type the appropriate command for your operating system, and then press ENTER.
      • Windows XP
      • rd /s C:\recycler
      • Note For hard drives with other letters, substitute C: for the desired hard drive letter.
    3. Close the Command Prompt window.
    4. Right-click an empty area of the desktop and then click Refresh.

    Note: The Recycle Bin should be empty now. If not, repeat these steps for any other hard drive letter that you have.

    Re: i cant empty my recycle bin

    Try the below steps then:

    1.Open a command prompt window
    2.Type cd recycled
    3.Type attrib -h inf*
    4.Type del info
    5. Restart Windows

    Try to empty again
    folder that you deleted in the Past but for some reason the info file of your recycle bin has become corupt. The above will delete it and fix it.

    If that doens't work try

    1.Restart to a command prompt.
    2.Type attrib -s -h recycled.
    3.Type del recycled.
    4.Restart the computers.
