    I recently downloaded and installed Windows Service pack 1 from the windows update site. Well almost immediately to computer was trying use ungodly amounts of physical memory. To make a long story short, I had to restore the system to before the windows update. Now I notice my recycle bin has files to be emptied but there is nothing in there. When I go to empty the recycle bin, a message pops up asking me “are you sure you want to delete ‘windows’. Has anyone ever seen this?

    It happened to me also. I gave up the idea of emptying the recycle bin, eventually it disappeared.
