Windows 7: Adobe Bridge will not delete or reject images in Win7

Adobe Bridge will not delete or reject images in Win7

Hi there everyone, I have a new problem that it seems nobody else has ever had as I can't find any support via google or yahoo.
As a photographer the issue is quote inhibiting.. Basically when I go to delete an image in bridge, it comes up with 'are you sure you want to send this image to the recylce bin' and I click 'yes' then it moves to the next image.. just like its supposed to BUT the image I 'deleted' has not moved from the folder.. it has not gone.
The same happens if I try to 'reject' an image. and yes I have 'show rejected images' selected.. yet just as with delete, when I try to 'reject' an image nothing happens.

* If I hit the delete button, 'do you want to reject this file or delete it?'
If I hit reject OR delete.. nothing happens.
If I hit 'control and delete' it asks me if I am sure I want to delete it.. then the fires remain.

I have a laptop with adobe Bridge on windowsvista, and no problem. My old pc was on windows xp and no problem.
This problem seems to be specific to windows7?
Does Adobe bridge
not support win7?

Hmmm where are you saving your images?
You might not have ownership/control of the current folder.

I just tried mine and had no problem.

I have 6 external hard drives and 2 internal, and the same problem regardless of where the image is from. should I reinstall or what?

I can only think of two things:

Find the bridge .exe file, right click > properties > compatibility > then check "run this program as administrator".

Resetting Bridge:
Launch Bridge whith Crtl-Alt-Shift pressed down. Dialog box will pop up. Tick all options, click OK to continue. You'll have to re-arrange preferences.

Also do you have the latest update for bridge from Adobe downloads?

Sorry that's all I can think of for now, you can try reinstall.
If I find any thing new, I'll keep checking back.
