WINNT files in the recycle bin

  GerdyC 12:02 07 Aug 2008

I have used a progamme Disk Cleaner to remove junk/cookies/history etc for some time.
Recently, after using, it I noticed that the recylce bin icon still showed has having items in it. Opening the recycle bin showed no items, however. Clicking on empty recycle bin I was asked " are you sure you want to delete WINNT". Obviously I said no and ran Disk Cleaner again. This showed a 35.1 mb file labelled WINNT as not deleted. Returning to the bin again I clicked on restore which appeared to work. I have been told that this has happened to a colleague who does not use disk cleaner. He eventually emptied the bin and as a result had to completely reinstall everything. Has anyone else had a similar experience, or any ideas what the cause was?
