if you already backup your pc, try to restore or scan your PC for any viruses.

Restart your system, then copy some of your personal files (pictures or documents for example) into a spare folder. Delete them from this folder one by one. Go to the bin and empty it.

Sometimes an action such as this will shake the bin into working again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Try this ..move the item manually by putting/ holding mouse on the item & if deleted then try to scan your system. It turns out that it’s exactly that method that you need to call in order to move a list item/document to the Recycle Bin instead of deleting it permanently.
