Recycle Bin not working as it should - W7

Whether I select delete from the file's menu or drag a file to the recycle bin the bin icon on the desktop still shows as empty.
Yet if I open the bin the files are there ready to be deleted and the icon then displays as full.
Sometimes Clicking on 'Empty the Recycle Bin' does nothing and I have to select the items and delete from the menu.
It doesn't matter from which drive I delete from.
Not a major issue but one I would like to solve if possible.

Thanks Strat.
I'll check that out a little later and let you know if it solves the problem.
