My recyscle bin icon shows that there is an item in the bin but when I click to open the bin it shoes nothing. When I go to empty bin it asks if I want to delete "windows" from the recycle bin!

Why is this happening and what should I do please?

Thanks

Phil

Double click on the bin and see whats in there, if there is part of windows there click on it once and then click restore.

Hi Vog

I have tried methods 1 and 3 on the site you pointed me to but to no avail. The bin still shows something in there but nothing shows when I "open" the folder although it asks if I want to delete "windows" when I click empty recycle bin.

Any other thoughts please?

Put something into the bin - then empty it - does it show empty afterwards?

Thanks all

I did a system restore and it has done the trick.

Thanks for the help
