    Oh, thats due to explorer.exe still holding onto the files. You can go to task manager, turn off explorer.exe and restart it. It works this way too.

    LOL....

    That reminds me...Sometimes when i try to empty my recycle bin, i get the following error:

    'Unable to delete c:\windows'

    Restart works, but thought I'd post it in this thread just and an FYI (not that I'm trying to delete Windows, but that the restart clears the recycle bin).
