Right clicking and choosing Empty on the Recycle Bin icon shows 33 items. When I click OK I get the munching sound so one would think that it is empty.

When I open the RB in My Computer it takes up to a minute to open and there is no content yet, when I right click on the desktop icon again it tells me that there are 33 items to delete.

Files are not hidden in Folder Options so I cannot see why this is happening.

Any thoughts would be appreciated,

Are you using any Norton or Symantec products? It could be that they are in the protected area that Norton sets aside for this purpose.
