Original Title: Recycle Bin Error.

I am using Win XP Pro, my recycle bin displays full icon,, but when i try to empty my recycle bin i am getting the following error

Cannot remove folder Dc214: Access is denied.

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

 

 

 

and no matter how mant times I try, same error even in safe mode. Google the problem nothing comes up

Try the solutions here. You have to take the files back out  of the recycle bin, change the permissions, then delete and empty the bin.

I believe that you can also elect to not use the Recycle Bin...with everything being directly deleted...then reboot and change the setting back using the RB.  That should empty the bin, IIRC.
