Lol, if your deleting somthing from the windows folder, some files from there cant be deleted normaly OR! it could be a virus that "CANNOT" be deleted in normal windows mode. but make shere its not a vital file first >.>, try rebooting and hold f5 or f8 on startup and go to safe mode, should work then

still nothing showed up but now i noticed something, under details it says system folder, so my system folder is in my recycle bin n i can't get it out beause i can't see it, could this be due to a virus?

Did you try rebooting the PC as Coz mentioned? If that doesn't work, do you have Norton Systemworks on your system?

I'm kind of having the same prob,i delete things from my computer,it sends them to the recycle bin and when i go to empty the bin it shows there is nothing there,but i empty anyway and can hear the bin emptying.
Hope you figure yours out soon then maybe i can figure mine out ,lol
