#1
Hello dear windowsForum friemds, Can someone please instruct me how to delete files with .db extension and shortcuts from the recycle bin? When i right click -> delete, I'm getting "are you sure" -> "yes" -> nothing happens.
Thanks a lot in advance for your time

Yes, I set the folder view *not to hide* anything :)

Finally, i made a system restore to try and correct (unsuccessfully) a wifi driver issue so that now the recycle bin is empty

Thank you very much.

BTW, do you know why i cannot upload an avatar to this site?

We are experiencing upload issues at this point although if the avatar is under a 1MB it should go through. Hopefully this issue will be rectified soon.
