The problem can be fixed by
- click start, type cmd to find cmd.exe shortcut
- right click on the cmd.exe shortcut and click on open "Run as Administrator"
- type following command not including quotes "cd C:\", then "rmdir C:\$RECYCLE.BIN /s"
- repeat for every partion, I have an e drive so I also did "cd E:\" "rmdir E:\$RECYCLE.BIN /s"
- when prompted say yes to agree to the delete.
- reboot machine
