Are you sure there's something in the trash? It will be grayed out if it's empty.

Try running Disk Cleanup. In Windows XP goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup

Select ALL the options in the list, and then hit cleanup. It may take for ever if its the first time, but let it be, come back when its done and restart the machine, and see if that boosted porformance, and cleared out the RB.

I would suggest using ccleaner to do a system cleanup. It's got a lot more features than the stock disk cleanup.
