WinXP Pro Recycle Bin always wants to delete 'Windows' - TechSpot Troubleshooting

WinXP Pro Recycle Bin always wants to delete 'Windows' - TechSpot Troubleshooting: "I have a strange problem with the Recycle Bin in Windows XP Pro. It often shows itself having files when it is empty. When I click 'Empty Recyle Bin' I am prompted with 'Are you sure you want to delete 'Windows'?' The byte count for the Recycle Bin folder shows 0 bytes. I've made sure that hidden and system files are set to be shown, but nothing is revealed in the folder. Clicking OK to delete 'Windows' clears the icon of its filled status and doesn't seem to hurt my system in any visible way, but it is remains an disconcerting irritation.

I've run spyware scans with Ad-aware v6.0 and anti-virus scans with NOD32, and no evidence of any malware was found.

Attached is a screen shot of my problem.

Any ideas on what my be causing this behavior and how to correct it?

Thanks in advance for any help on this!"
