Default Theres probably a simple answer

K well I used to be an avid computer user. Changing operating systems on a regular basis (switching between linux's and windows)-, used to build pcs on the frontline in the Australian alienware offices, and worked for mac. But. I simply can't work out whats up with my XP. I open recycling bin cause its indicating theres trash with the full rubbish bin icon on the desktop. Its empty. But I know this problem so I just assume I can't empty the bin unless I put something in it but theres still something to empty. So I click it. Then it says "Are you sure you want to delete 'WINDOWS'?" - But I'm displaying all hidden files and folders I've been to check on the root directories of the system for corruptions and I can't find a single mistake. Theres just an empty bin claiming it wants to delete windows that I can't seem to see? Help?

I really don't think it is a virus. It could be possible an error in the registry. Here is quick fix for the registry.

Open up notepad, and paste following into it:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\BitBucket]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}]

save the file as an "*.reg" file to the desktop and "run" it.

if there's an error, remove the top line which says "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00", but it should work like that.

It could simply be a corrupted file in the recycle bin .
