    I have gone thru several threads regarding people putting items in the Recycle Bin only to have them not be visible when they open the RB (both in Windows XP and ME). Several of them stated the RB indicated a number of items when they click on "empty", but none of the items are showing. I have seen several answers regarding this - but one, which worked for this "dummy" was to remove the check on the recycle bin box in my Window Washer Program. Some of you may also have a cleaning program which is causing this? Took me quite a while to determine this was my problem. Always ready to share my computer ignorance with others. At least now I can get back my mistakes thrown in the RB. lol!
