undeletable files and double entries

Hi all!

I got a problem with double entries which I found out while selecting a new background. I want to learn how I can remove double entries in picture location list.



Also an error message appears when I select either



In addition to double entries on picture background list, I have one more problem with undeletable files in recycle bin. I don't know where they come from but I get a warning message whenever I want to clear them

Desktop background issue solved
However, I'm still in a complete fog about my corrupted recycle bin. The related notes couldn't help me unfortunately

I have a multi-fixing tool that I use to fix Windows problems. Such as corrupted 'Computer', 'Recycle Bin' ... etc
It can also remove double copies of files and folders. It has tons of features. But you have to purchase the full version to be able to use them all. Still recommend it though.

Software: Advanced SystemCare 4

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode? That might allow you to navigate to your Recycle Bin and delete the offending file(s). Also, schedule a defrag and allow it to run when you re-boot Windows.

I would certainly try Safe Mode before anything else.

Had another idea. Have to tried CCleaner? That software contains a function for cleaning out the contents of the Recycle Bin.

I've tried it, but it was no use

CCleaner, too, failed to empty Recycle Bin.
