    I have XP pro.
    I have had a problem with my MP3 player and had to reformat it.
    There was a lot of corruption on it.
    Since then my recycle bin says there is something in it but there is'nt
    and when I go 'right click' 'empty recycle bin' i get a message saying do I want to delete
    " Windows".
    What the f__k is happening?
    Please help.
    Thanks

    Click "YES" or "OK" for that bit and go and make a cup of tea/coffee.

    There is something in there otherwise you wouldn't have empty recycle
    bin as an option.

    Might be worth trying ExplorerXP from http://www.explorerxp.com/ as it
    shows some files that Windows Explorer doesn't - worth looking on each
    drive separately.
    You are showing full extensions and hidden files, aren't you?

    If you can do it today, you didn't put off enough yesterday.
