Default Recycle Bin error?

My friend is have a problem where his Windows Recycle Bin shows that it's full on the destop...but when he clicks on it, nothing shows up in the folder. And when he tries to empty it, it says "Are you sure you want to delete "WINDOWS"?"

If it was me I'd probably just empty it but he wants to make sure it's not gonna delete his operating system or something.

Hey,

...has he done a Virus Scan? It seems very likely that he's been attacked!

It won't hurt him if he says yes, because even if he WAS going to delete it, like 7154 said, it won't let him and will give an error.
