    Recycle bin takes much time to open in Windows 7 Professional

    When I double clicked on the recycle bin to open it takes much time to open. It takes minimum 10 seconds to open the recycle bin. Apart from that, system runs fast and does not delay in any event. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:

    1. Open an elevated Command Prompt by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.

    2. Type the following command rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin and press Enter:

    This clears out the $Recycle.bin folder for C:\ drive. You may have to do this for each hard disk partition in your system, by changing C to the drive letter of the other drive.

    3. Type exit to close the Command Prompt window.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Reasons behind the sluggish Recycle Bin can be of varied dimentions.

    1. the system may have the problem of virus infection. Clean the System.
    2. there may be a number of files earlier deleted by you and not cleared from the Recycle Bin, that takes time to read and load.
    3. Hidden files can be there which are not normally deleted, and should be deleted from the Command Prompt by typing "rd /s/q c:\$recycle.bin.
    4. The Windows can be affected for some reasons and Recycle Bin utility is facing the main problem, an Windows Repair can solve the issue.

    Thanks.
