Hello World, My recycling bin will not empty. It will crash but the just that particular application. The rest of the computer doesn't freeze. I think it has something to do with Adobe Illustrator ai files (illustrator 9)--they are causing a problem. Can I empty it in msdos somehow? How do I get to the recycling bin in Dos?

Help!

Open a command prompt window:
Start > Run > "cmd" > OK

At the command prompt, type:
rd /s \recycler

This will delete the entire Recycle Bin folder. Windows will recreate it
the next time it's needed.

If your file system is FAT rather than NTFS, the folder will be named
RECYCLED rather than RECYCLER. If you have more than one logical drive
defined, there will be a Recycle Bin folder on each.
