Do you've any programs like Ccleaner and such to delete temporary files and other junk? If yes, they might have been setup to delete them to Recycle Bin.

Using Ccleaner or Glary or other utilities does not solve the problem!!!

Maybe you can at least open the recycle bin to tell us what types of files are being deleted. It will open like a folder. I would think depending on the type of file we may get to the root of this evil. LOL

That's exactly why I asked for a screenshot in the first place. Perhaps we have too many helpers here causing some overlap. I will stand back and just look!

Matter of fact I just emptied the bin and all this shows up. Where did it come from? I guess it is just a faulty Win 7!

"if you don' delete anything then nothing will go in there" NOT TRUE There is a lot I mean alot of repetition of files. Maybe 10 or more of each

Jim I guess no one else has had this problem?
In your system specs it shows your machine was "put together".

Was the case and hard drive given to you from a friend? He/she may not have cleaned everything up before you recieved it.

If it was brand new I would suggest that you run one or two anti-malware programs to make sure your system isn't infected.

Here are two good ones:
Malwarebytes
Or:
SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

Make sure they are updated before you use them! There are a few other ways that your hard drive could have gotten those files on them, but I leave that go for now.

Using Ccleaner or Glary or other utilities does not solve the problem!!! as I SAID before! I have too many files and only "empty the recycle bin. In XP I could empty one file at a time. With so many files it is hard to locate the right ones. So I empty the whole bin.

Does anyone know why I have so many files? If not I will go to another forum!

Sorry help hasn't come along but your problem is not listed in any technical resource I can find. I spent a decent amount of time looking.
The only explanation I can come up with is for some reason your browser is dumping temporary files to the recycle bin. This is not normal windows behavior. Something is causing it, it's most likely a third party app or malware.

There's not enough information here to be more specific than that.
