Recycle bin icon shows full. Double click no data. select empty recycle bin
"are you sure you want to delete WINDOWS ?" All efforts to restore the WINDOWS file are ignored.
I'm afraid to empty the bin.

Hello rodericky,

You said that when you look in the Recycle Bin there is "no data", but then say that you have tried to restore the WINDOWS file? Can you please clarify?

Do you see any files in the Recycle Bin?

--------------------------------------------------------

Also, are you experiencing any other unusual problems?

sorry, I posted the reply in the wrong place. The recycle icon has a folder showing. Double clicked the icon. Resulting page is blank. Tried to restore. Nothing happens because the recycle page is empty. Clicked empty recycle bin. Got " do you really want to delete WINDOWS ?"

Other problems. Last boot attempt failed. Use F2 to boot.

Other Have Win 7 Pro SP1 64 bit and Win XP Pro SP3 32 biton same HD

Try THIS.

Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

Restart the computer.

If the fix only opens as a text file (in Notepad), right-click the file (before opening it) and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

Is this thread really solved, or have you hit the
button by mistake?

after recycle registry fix, system boots normally.

Since there was no data in the recycle page, I elected to delete WINDOWS from the recycle bin. The bin is now empty and C:\WINDOWS is in its place so I would say the problem is solved.

Thanks to all.
Rodericky
