Problems Deleting Folder - "Preparing to Recycle"

#1
Hi there,

I've been trying to delete this folder and whenever I try to delete, the recycle notification shows up and for the last 20 minutes.

The notification says - "Preparing to recycle" and hasn't changed for the last 20 minutes.
Also in task manager, my explorer.exe is always around 50 -90 and its slowing my computer

What should I do and please give me steps to sort it out.

It's really bugging me.

I've put in a screen shot of the notification

You could try LockHunter to see what is locking the folder or preventing it's deletion.
