    I have one item that I cannot get out of the recycle bin. I can't delete it and I can't restore it. I want to delete it, but even if I could restore it that would work because I could set the recyle bin properties not to be added to upon delete and then delete the file.

    So, I would like advice as to how to get rid of this one item. If more information is needed, let me know.

    Have you tried (free) Move On Boot:

    This from their website:
    "Have you ever faced a problem on moving, renaming or deleting files that are locked by your system? If this is true in your case then, look no further MoveOnBoot is the best solution for you. It enables you to perform those actions with ease that requires no hectic procedure.
    When you want to delete a file, delete a file in a folder or delete a folder, simply move the file into the program and rename the files or folders that are locked, you can do all this in a breeze."
