    My recycle bin in WIN XP HOME SP2 is driving me nuts, the icon on the Desktop shows that there are things in the recycle bin but upon opening the bin, it is empty. The command to empty the bin is available and when I give the command, I get a confirmation dialog that asks me if I wish to confirm a multiple file delete. When I confirm my command, nothing occurs. Any ideas out there.

    Thank you very much for the links, I did try all of the suggestion it had, which was a lot, none of them really worked, so i decided to delete the reycler folder C:\recyler, it gave an error message saying it could delete a folder with that was named with just a bunch of letters and numbers. I click ok, and it works, I could see the 34 files I couldn't see before, I could delete them, and the icon is no longer full, and no prompts to delete. So very happy. Thanks for all your help :)
