Recycle Bin problems

Win2000pro.

"Recycle Bin" shows full icon only.
When I place items in they do not show in Recycle directory for retrieval.
When I "Empty Recycle Bin" it always asks if I want to delete 42 items
no matter when I try.

Please elaborate a little, as I don't fully understand your post.

Do you mean no matter when you go to empty the recycle bin you always have
42 files?

Most likely the index file is corrupted. The quickest way to clean things
up is to delete the Recycle Bin folder and let Windows recreate it. To do
this, open a command prompt window (Start > Run, type "cmd", click OK) and
type the command

rd /s \Recycler
