i'm using 7, when i try to delete, it takes a long time for the process indicator to appear and after a while a message appears can not access file or something similar also when i try to open the bin, recycle bin not responding comes up. the icon on the desk top looks different it appears transparent, when i manage to delete an item from the desktop it doesn't show on the recycle bin page
Hi Jess, I worked through your suggestions but unfortunately it did not resolve the problem with my recycle bin. Could you log on to my computer and find out what is wrong? Personally I am Computer illiterate.
yes i have installed the cleaner and anti malware programsand run them twice. the appearance of the icon is now normal but if i want to open it it comes back with "recycle bin not responding" .
as it is getting late here i will retire but leave the computer on line.
obviously i can not tick the smiley faces since my problem is nor resolved.
as i mentioned in my e-mail, if you are able to log on to my computer feel free to do so. i have backed up all my files on an external drive and disconnected the drives. i have tried to run my recovery disk without achieving a result. i also run Reg Cure Pro but my HP Help is crashing so you are my last resort.
yes i run two clean up operation and also a quick scan and a full scan for malware

I have tried and tried your suggestion of re-installing the recycle bin the result is as follows. to open the bin takes a long time (2 min +) when deleting from the external hard drive after a time i get a message "cant read from source file or disk" i can delete from My Docs but it takes a long tome to empty the bin. i am able to transfer from external hard drive to my computer. i tried to re-install the recycle bin in "G:" without success. on top of it i am getting frustrated. unfortunately i have no system disk only a recovery disk. i have an XP disk would that help?
What i did was after installing rd/s/q C:\$Recycle.bin, i substituted G: for C: again it didn't make any difference
Hi Jess, I still get the not responding message, i defraged a few days ago
Hi Jess, I have de-fragmented the C Drive and also run scandisk. No improvement. You better walk me through for a new admin. I will not do anything tonight but continue tomorrow.
till then Dieter
Keep me posted.
Hi Jess, The new administrator works a treat. Now please advise how I can transfer my programs from my old account to my new account also how can i protect my new account with a password as that was not asked for.
Now, the NEXT big thing that we need to do is to COPY all of your data FROM the original profile TO the new user profile.
Here are the steps in quick reference:
Note here that you need the Third account so that you can DO the copying. You cannot copy those data if you are logged in to the account that you are copying.
