I have noticed that the items in my recycle bin are not showing up. I have tried changing the view and making sure it is showing invisible files. Also, if i click "Empty reclycle bin" it will recognize that their are 4 items there. After i click ok, if i click "empty recycle bin" again, it recognizes the same 4 files (like it didn't do anything) any help would be great

Did it fix itself when you went to empty it in Safe Mode?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Just as an FYI...

The newest version of VX2 is corrupting the recycle bin. The fix is:

Click Start, Run and type cmd. Press OK.

A DOS window will open.

Type the following and then press Enter after typing each one:

attrib -h -s c:\recycler

del c:\recycler


Close the window and REBOOT.



Thanks go to Zupe.
