Whenever I delete anything I get a popup that says "The Recycle Bin on C:/ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the recycle bin for this drive?" Does anyone know how to fix this?

This appears to be Microsoft's official fix for the problem which should probably be your first port of call .... Error Message: The Recycle Bin on C:\ Is Corrupt or Invalid

I requested the hotfix for XP but when I tried to run it, I got this message "Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of the system is newer than the update you are applying to it. You can only install this update on a computer with no Service Packs installed."

I recently saw this message and emptied the Recycle Bin...problem gone.

Sometimes...Windows is pretty straightforward on what needs to be done.

The recycle bin is empty. Nothing can be put into it because it is corrupted.

Did you answer "yes" to the prompt which appeared?
