hello
try this.
copy & paste the text in bold below into notepad and save it as recyclerem.bat
(Set filetype to "All Files")


attrib -r -s -h %systemdrive%\Recycler
del %systemdrive%\Recycler
attrib -r -s -h %systemdrive%\Recycled
del %systemdrive%\Recycled
shutdown /r /t 0 /f


Close all programs and doubleclick recyclerem.bat

Your computer will reboot and you will have a shiny new (empty) recycle bin.
