Windows 7: locked Recycle Bin inside $Recycle.Bin

locked Recycle Bin inside $Recycle.Bin

Hello,

I'm trying to resolve an issue involving a bunch of "illegitimate" Windows Live streams (discovered in a Stream Armor scan).

In trying to resolve the issue, I've deleted several leftover Windows Live files and registry entries (after making a backup) that weren't removed when I uninstalled Windows Live a few months ago.

For whatever reason, the files won't leave the recycle bin, and the streams are still active.

I looked inside $Recycle.Bin and found that there's a locked Recycle Bin inside it. Is this normal? Can I delete it? How?

I've never had a locked recycle bin inside my recycle bin so I'd say it's not normal
