The non-emptying recycle bin... again.

Hi all,
About approximately since version 4.06 CCleaner is not being able to clear the recycle bin. I can still clean it manually by right-clicking the recycle bin and letting the files go. I'm running Windows 7 x64 and these are my specs:

Might be relevant to say I run Kaspersky Internet Security and Rainmeter, but the first is more recent than the problem.

I already read this thread...
http://forum.piriform.com/?showtopic=36449
...and proceeded to the unchecking of those options. Nothing helped.

My CCleaner.ini file:

Please help :)

That's odd, because in the CCleaner UI there is no such specific thing...

The only two options regarding the recycle bin are about adding entries to the context menu.

 

The weird thing now is, I just manually changed 'False' to 'True' in the ini file, then relaunched CCleaner. The first thing now is that it prompts me whether to enable or not the smart cookies filtering, and I say yes. Next thing is an almost empty cookie list (I have added tens to the exceptions list, just removed them from the paste above).

The ini file is still there with all my cookies saved, but the exclusion list won't show up in the program's interface!

To verify the Empty Recycle Bin status, click on the Cleaner icon (not the Options icon) on the left side of the CCleaner window.  Make sure the Windows tab is selected. Scroll down to the System group (category). Empty Recycle Bin should be the first checkbox in the list.
