Windows 7: corrupt recycle bin

Windows 7 Ultimate
corrupt recycle bin

Folks, I have done something aggravating to my windows 7 64 setup.
I continually receive the message on start-up and when I delete an files . " The Recycle Bin on C:\ is corrupted Do you want to empty the Recycle bin on this drive? " If I click on yes , I get another pop-up message Box " Destination Path too long ".
I Have reloaded windows 7 Home premium 64 and finally up graded to Ultimate 64.

Do you have any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

This answer probably won't be of much help to you, but if I were you, I would just reinstall Windows from scratch. Sometimes it may just be easier to start over rather than to try and fix something.
