you're right, my mistake... probably using some theme setup. it's just that it takes a good amount of RAM in vista to make everything run "smoothly." it's very inefficient with how it deals with memory allocation, that's all. i'll let the people who love vista run it, it's their choice. personally i'd put Server 2003/Ubuntu on every machine and be worry free.

And then to the recycle bin, I think he's probably tried that already though.

Maybe CCleaner will help? Just a hunch, I don't think it will but it will be good for your PC anyway.

I know it's annoying, (it would bug the hell out of me too) but if all is working well, leave it be.

Maybe it's a glitch resulting from your custom theme.
