Hi Sadie,

You are receiving this error possible because your computer has been infected by a virus or a Trojan that will not allow you to empty your files from the recycle bin, so I will advice that you update your antivirus if you have not done that lately and perform a full scan of your system so that the Trojan or virus can be found and removed.

Another thing that I will advise you to give a try is emptying your recycle with an application called Ccleaner, which you can download for free online. Just search for it through Google and download it and then install it on your computer and then use it to scan your system; and ensure that you select the recycle bin as part of the destinations you want to scan.
