✔ Best Answer
You've obviously enabled "show hidden files & folders" & "protected operating system files". As the following article states, certain files/folders are hidden for a reason - to prevent users from tampering with them. Even if you delete them, they will be recreated.

As given, if you delete the $recycle.bin then it will recreate the Recycle bin on restart. The only time I have seen this used is in order to refresh a bin which is playing up.

Why are you trying to do this? There are other ways of changing your recycle bin and system restore features. Deleting files is the most dangerous option.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
