Thank you for the reply, Joel!
I just emptied the C > Windows >Prefetch in Windows XP Home w/SP-3 :Failed -->
using version 5.82 only 1) option in lieu of 6-7) on the later version.
Using either option, standard Empty Recycle Bin (vs) Erase), the Recycle Bin: Erasing appears fruit-less...
Yes... I have searched the forms 1st.
Not working problems appear to be related to Window$ Vi$ta.
I am running Windows XP professional w/SP-3.
There are 7) options in the recycle bin from 35 pass gutman down to 1-pass Pseudorandom Data.
I have tried them all, and without fail.......They Fail...
