Different set-up to yours, but try right-clicking on the bin and select properties.

In the bad old days when I used McAfee, I ignored their takeover of my recycle bin (which didn't work properly anyway - I couldn't afford to wait all the time it needed to "destroy" the files) by clicking on the file menu (top left of screen) and using the Windows empty facility from there. Don't know whether it would work on yours but, give it a go.
