    Icons disappearing when click & goes to Recycle Bin

    Here's the problem:

    Every time I start my computer and I click on an icon (on the desktop or in the Start menu), the icon disappears and this error message shows up about a dozen times:"Could not find this item. This is no longer in C:\...Verify this item's location." And that things (ex- documents, my computer icon, movie, song) go to Recycle Bin. And when i select bunch of file by pressing CTRL+A, then it shows option for delet automatically. I am using ASUS K46 Series laptop with windows 8.
    In my thinking, there might be problem regarding DEL key. I thought that because when i press power button of my laptop instantly boot menu comes ( which come only by pressing DEL key normally). But DEL key looks like normal like other key. there is no tapped or go inside of DEL key. So plz help me. I am now stuck with this. I can't do anything with this. PLZ help me.

    Sounds like a virus or malware has infected your system. Run a full scan with you AV program and also download and Malwarebytes (Free).

    If I suspect what has happened has happened you may have to reinstall Windows.

recycle bin icons full/empty won't refresh automatically
Hello, My recycle bin full/empty icons won't refresh automatically. I need to press F-5 key to refresh them. I have tried lots of ways to fix it. I think it may have something to do with the icon cache, not sure though.
