Windows 7: Recycle bin how to fix using healthy user profile

Recycle bin how to fix using healthy user profile

My recycle bin is corrupt. Always shows empty even when not empty.
When I right click to empty that recycle bin I get an error message:

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel"

I created another user account and the recycle bin works fine when I log in to the new account.

Please advise how to fix the original recycle bin via Default Programs or by using the working recycle bin in the newly created profile
Thanks

Hello

How many disk drives are connected to the computer? If you have more than one disk drive, then you might have more than one recycle bin.

If this is C drive try the following elevated command prompt.

Code:
rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.Bin
To open an elevated command prompt, type CMD in the search box in the start orb and right click command prompt and chose to open as Admin.

If this is D drive or some other drive just change the drive letter from C to D, etc.

Restart the computer after you using the command.

Do the basic first.

Open a cmd window as administrator and type:
chkdsk c: /f
It will say the disk is in use and ask if you want to schedule no next restart = Yes
Restart
Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors etc

Back to windows, do a System File Check
Open a cmd window as administrator and type:
sfc / scannow
