Hi, i really need your help. I right clicked the recycle bin in WINXP and a message pops up as usual saying to you want to delete soa nd so. This time it was saying are you sure you want to remove 'WINDOWS' which i assume is the windows folder. This scares me, i have not moved the folder there and when i open the recycle bin it sais there are no items in there. Help! Is a virus trying to do this?!?!?

have a look at my computer - c drive - program files. Is windows still there and does it work?

i got this some time ago and i am not sure of the answer as to why.

when i got this strange message i restarted the computer and then could empty the contents of the bin ok.

dont delete it,just restart then check it again.
