When I right click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin, the desktop freezes: the desktop become unclickable; if I click anywhere on the desktop, it just gives me a "ding" sound.
Everything else works fine, like icons on the dock is clickable, I can go to start and open an app etc.

The way I can empty the recycle bin is open the recycle bin and empty it within the folder.

What seems be the problem? Thanks

Sky,

Not sure what the problem is (my system does not have this problem), so I did a Google search and came up with this LINK. Hope this helps. Good luck.
