This problem has been fixed and it was scary at first, but after I did it, it works like a charm.

#1: Go to file option
#2: Uncheck Hide Protected operating System Files
#3: Click on each drive and the you'll see "$Recycle Bin."
#4: On each drive delete this file.
#5: When you go back to your desktop you'll still see it, but don't worry.
#6: Go back to file option
#7: Check Hide Protected Operating System Files
#8: Click apply
#9: Go To Go.
