Default Can't open recycle bin

It all started after I deleted a 4 GB file from one of my HDs. Shortly afterwards, my computer restarted itself for some reason. After loading XP it said that the drive I deleted the 4 GB file from needed consistency checking. So I accepted and let it "repair" the volume. Now, whenever I try opening the recycle bin, the CPU usage and RAM goes up to 100%, and the HD keeps looking for something until I am forced to restart it again.

I think it's a master drive. Anyways, system restore worked. Everything is back to normal. Thanks, wozel.
