recycle bin weirdness!


C

Chink!

Hello

My recycle bin is acting oddly
I delete things but they dont go to the recycle bin
The recycle bin shows "there are no files in the recycle bin" and it appears
completely empty
However when I right click on the recycle bin icon and choose empty recycle
bin it says "Are you sure you want to delete these 78 items?"
I havent changed any settings to bypass the recycle bin (or any others for
that matter)

How can I make the files visible again?

thanks in advance
CH!

Make sure show hidden files an folders is enabled in Windows Explorer | Tools | Folder Options... | View. Then delete C:\RECYCLER and reboot. That should fix it.
