hi mta !


as i told before, my recycle bin is not corrupted - its empty after running cclaner


nevertheless ccleaner displays same files to be deleted again and again - see sccreenshot in my last post


so your link does not help because recycle bin is emtpy and there is nothing to delete - even not manually




please see  same problem - posted by SMFletcher91 on November 21

I don't actually know what your problem is, all I have to go on is the details given.

Based on that and past posts, I would recommend you follow the steps on the assumption you do have a corrupt recycle bin.

You may be right and it's not corrupt, but doing the process anyway will not make things any worse and may - just may - fix it.


One of the symptoms of a corrupted recycle bin is one piece of software sees it as empty and another sees it as not empty.

If you don't want to do the suggested step - no worries, it is after all your PC.

But until that potential is crossed off the list of possibilities, I don't know what other advice I can offer.


Perhaps others can chime in...

i followed your suggestion and deleted the (empty) recycle bin


running ccleaner after that it shows no files to be deletetd in recycle bin


but after some hours, same 'problem' occured again -- ccleaner shows up non existing files

within the recycle bin


running ccleaner as an Administrator sometimes helps to make the 'problem' disappear
