    Talking Windows Recycle Bin not emptying

    I am running WIN XP SP2 and I empty anything from the reccycle bin It comes up with a windows error message saying windows encountered a problem and sorry for the inconvenience I am thinking it is either viral or spyware related but nether Ezy Antivirus or Spybot have picked anything up and yes they are both up to date any help anyone can offer would be great and much appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't spoken to my wife for 18 months - I just don't dare to interrupt her.

    or you could install and run Crap Cleaner [ google for ccleaner]
    It empties the recycle bin , as well as removing all sorts of other ... crap

    Probably not the problem but are they all you have? If so then you should get at least one other anti-spyware program. One is not enough.

    Try Disk Clean-up.

    I get this message sometimes, but it's usually related to some running process or aplication related to the file i'm trying to delete. Have you stopped all relevant applications and processes?
