    Hello,

    while I am using my old Windows XP SP3 Laptop, I try to solve some problems. This time I had an old folder, that I could not delete - the folder didn'T gave me the access to do that. That with the program "Unlocker" I could delete it into the recycler. Now sadly the Recycler is empty inside, but the Icon of it shows me there is something in. When I press Clean Recycler, then I get the message Dd13 can not be deleted. Access denied.

    Anyone knows what to do, to fix that?

    (BTW: This a translation from german to english. words may be different)

    One of those tricks really worked.
    I had to move the Recycler.bak to Desktop and then delete it.

    You are my computer god! :) Thanks!
