Recycle Bin gone wonky !

  Derek 13:11 15 Aug 2007

XP Pro. Using Ghost v10.

I right click on the Recycle Bin and I see those items that I have deposited there ready for disposal.
If I left click and Explore, I'm confronted with;

+ My Docs.
+ My Computer.
+ Network.
and Recycle Bin.

If I then click on this new "My Computer" I see the entire contents of my hard drive. Scary !

In other words, when I 'explore' the Recycle Bin,
it's the same as double left clicking on the proper "My Computer" (top left corner of the screen).

This really is a mystery to me and I wonder what might happen if I 'delete' these 'funny' files in the Recycle Bin. I require help please.

Hi Mine is the same so don't worry,

I am only guessing but when you explore the recycle bin it is showing you were the deleted files are to be removed and were they are going to be placed eg/ a free space on your hard drive ready to be overwritten the recycle bin needs access to these?
