I was deleting some of my old files. And I emptied my Recycling Bin, but the icon still showed the little papers in it. So I opened it up and the folder was empty, but when I click Empty Recycling Bin, it asks if I want to delete 'WINDOWS'. I should I empty it and see what happens? I'm kinda worried. :tazz:

Here's a screen shot. Link.

Hi there JuiceBox007.

You can give it a try. Windows Cannot delete anything to do with windows if in process, so you should be safe there. Do you have Norton I know norton has hiddend or protected files in recycle bin and can only be deleted by cleaning it out using norton. (I dont know about the new versions of norton but old norton does that)

Do NOT do anything at the moment unless you really want to, maybe wait a few more days for someone elses oppinion.

Cool :tazz:

Well I rebooted my laptop and when it was done, the recycling bin was empty. So I dont think it was anything serious.
