How to empty a recycle bin that appears to be empty?

  1. Apparently I have 6 items in my recycle bin. Problem is there appears to be nothing there. Every time I try to delete them I get an error message:
    "Error deleting file or folder: Cannot delete <file - a pdf> The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name."

    I'm guessing it's too long, seriously long. But how to delete them. Even when I try to clean up my hard drive it acknowledges that these files are there (48 MB worth) but does not delete them.

    Any ideas???
