    I have several folders in my recycle bin that won't delete. How can I delete them?
    Thanks, Debbie

    Howdy,

    Probably a refresh issue. Try restarting your PC and see if they are gone.

    I have had that happen with 98, XP and on more then one PC. But if you right click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin it should empty the Recycle Bin or it has always worked for me.

    The method on microsoft website seems to have handled the problem.
