This just started in the last 2 months, everything I delete disappears but does not go to the recycle bin. I checked and the option to always delete fully and do not send to the recycle bin is off. If I try to empty my recycle bin anyway it always has 3 items to empty but they are not visable. No matter how many time you empty it still ask you are you sure you want to delete these 3 items. Thanks

Download and install Ccleaner. During the installation say yes when asked if you want to add Ccleaner to the right click Recycle Bin menu. After running Ccleaner (Don't use the Issues tab unless you have a specific Registry issue to deal with) right click the Recycle bin and choose Run Ccleaner. That should do it.
