Yes, I recently deleted two folders off of my computer, and when I "emptied the recycle bin" the icon still wasn't "empty". It also asks me if I want to delete "WINDOWS" when I do it. I don't want anyone to accidentally delete that.

Is there anyway I can fix this?

I would appreciate quick help on this, thanks.

EDIT: Now the "Empty Recycle Bin" option is greyed out. I'm really lost now. >_<

EDIT2: And.... it's fine now.

.... Huh.

Just fixed itself, as far as I know. My computer seems to do this often, actually.

And now that I think about it, I was deleting a sizable amount of stuff at once, it may just have been lagging. But I'm not a techie by any means. >_>

Well, that's the odd thing, Windows wasn't actually in the Recycle Bin. Maybe it's a default setting or something. : /

And I dunno how it fixed itself, if Emery was being sarcastic, if not, you're welcome. :whistling:
