WindowsME Recycle Bin Problem

Silly thing to check maybe, but is there a sound associated to emptying the bin? A corrupted soundfile can cause strange things like this.

If you haven't lately, run in-depth scandisk on the drive having the problem with the Recycle Bin. It sounds to me like you may have one or more corrupted files causing a problem.

If you reinstalled the OS on top of an old copy of the OS, this may not correct the problem. You might also try running SCANREG (the registry scanner). If you have an invalid entry in your registry, reinstalling the OS sometime will not clear this up.

If all else fails, you may need to reformat the hard drive, and reinstall the OS.

Hope this helps.
