Can't empty trash

Posted: 06-17-2006, 05:08 PM
It takes several attempts for me to empty the trash, it's taken over an hour
and a half to manually keep telling it to empty the trash over and over and
over again until all files deleted...

This is really annoying, is there a way that empty trash or 'delete
immediately' can delete without repeated manual intervention?

Aye, you'll need to turn off UAC for this. Many have had troubles with
constant dialogs - hopefully this will cut down on a few:

Also, right click on the Recycle Bin > Properties > untick Display delete
confirmation box > Global Settings > "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin"
> OK > Apply > OK.

Hey Zack,

Thanks so much, I actually dicovered the UAC switch as I was hunting
around... It definitely helped a lot...

Now if I can only track down why my network won't auto connect to my
wireless network and why it won't connect to the net through my cat 5 router
I'll be happy...

Darn Radeon 9800 Vista drivers caused me problems, had to force XP drivers
for the videocard... Not as fast but at least I can keep testing the
software...
