Usually after a certain size of files being deleted at once the Recycle
Bin will give you that "Cannot delete", but will ask if you want to
permanently delete it instead.
You can see how to set the Recycle Bin to permanently delete at this
site. If you are just using it to delete that one "Windows.old" file,
then I would set it back when done to prevent accidentally deleting
something you do not want to permanently.
