Every time I delete a file, it doesn't go into my recycle bin, it just
deletes although I have the recycle bin properties set to move deleted files
into the recycle bin. Yet at the same time, my recycle bin has the full
icon, and it says there are 5 itmes in it, and even tho I click to empty it,
they never go away. When I open it however, there's nothing in it. So
basically, my recycle bin is empty, but it always tells me theres 5 items in
it, and whenever I delete something, it doesn't go into the bin. Please help.
