Recently, when trying to empty my recycle bin in WinME, my computer becomes unstable and slow. It starts saying that Explorer is 'not responding' when i press ctrl+alt+del and i then have to restart my computer.

I have recently installed some software which I have to admit, once it is up and runningit uses and awful lot of processor power, but this happens when the application is not running. Can anyone shed any light as to how I can ammend this problem, without re-installing windows + apps

Kind regards

The only info i can find on this is a problem when you have more than 4000 items in the Recycle Bin. Is this likely?

Try running Disk Clean Up. Open My Computer, Right Click, the C drive and click Properties, Disk Clean Up (next to pie chart of disk) One option is to clean the recycle bin. Maybe this will work.

Ah yes i forgot about that

It does it when I have as little as 9 items in there

Kind regards

You might even have to try Safe Mode (although i don't know if can emptry the recycle bin in Safe Mode)
