Windows 7: Constant (corrupt recycle bin(s))!

Yep, programs installed will always remain installed usable. It's just their shortcuts created in the user account that need to be copied over to the other one. They will be included though when copying the files from the user folders to the new account's user folders.

Spoke too soon I'm afraid, the new admin account is suffering from the corrupt recycle bins

Not sure what left to try as it's becoming more and more frequent, I have 7 error messages everytime I want to delete a file!

Any more ideas guys?

Thanks in advanc

Have you installed any drivers for your motherboard, video card, etc? If you have not, have you checked for Windows 7 x64 drivers? If they aren't available, have you tried using the Vista x64 drivers?

Also - enter your computer information the the systems specs portion of your profile.

Tylor,

Was this installation a clean (format) or upgrade installation? If upgrade, you might consider backing up and doing a clean install instead. Sometimes a upgrade install may not always go to plan.

Yeah, I did an upgrade first off but after a few qwerks I decided to do a clean install so not sure why I am experiencing this error!

Are you completely wiping your drive before installing?? You shouldn't be having this corruption with a clean install...

I can't remember off the top of my head whether it was a format but surely a clean install is exactly that, not upgrading or transferring files/settings - brand new fresh build?

No, its not the same. While not a common occurrence, it is possible to have garbage left behind if you dont do a real format before installing your OS. If it is possible, do a format, then re-install and let us know how it comes out...

During the install process, select advanced install. You can select the Windows 7 partition and format it, then continue with the install.

Yep,

For a clean (format) install: Clean Install Windows 7

Without formating and not doing a upgrade install, it would be a custom install instead.
