"You are obviously recycling files. That means: Windows moves them into the ""trash"" folder.

To delete a file, go to the Explorer, select the file(s), hit Shift-Del, and Windows will really delete them.

Alternatively, you could disable the trash folder (also called Recycle Bin).

Note: This will permanently delete files, you will no longer be able to recover deleted files from the Recycle Bin."

google desktop = slow file operations. Put up your resource monitor and try it. I did and removed google because the hit was sometimes up to 30%. Windows normally will wait for slow cpu usage before rebuilding the index, google wants it all now.
