Stop this

Each time I delete something I get this confirmation "calculating time remaining"
"recycling item"
Can I stop this appearing each time I delete something.

I had a similar problem the other day, where a file couldn't be deleted, and every time I accessed the folder Vista threw a fit and I had to shut down & restart explorer.exe

In the end I had to go to command prompt and delete the offending file that way

windows key + R, type cmd, then type

del "c:/folder path/file.ext"

i.e. del "C:/user/alan14/documents/wordfile.doc"

Still same problem. I have Vista.

My link above is for Vista - have you checked out any of the options listed in the Related Links portion?

Yes but unable to find how to stop message telling me "calculating time remaining"
"recycling item" Unchecked box asking if I wish to delete item

Do you have Vista SP1 installed?

This seem relevant click here but a quick internet search indicates that the hotfix doesn't always work.

It could also be a corrupted recycle bin click here
