I see two different kinds of errors.

The first is an "unspecified error" when cleaning the recycling bin. Are you running as an administrator? The best way to tell is to click Help - System Information and verify win32com.shell.shell.IsUserAnAdmin() = False

The second is an "Unsupported special file type". I thought maybe these files are symlinks, but I just did some testing here on Windows Vista with symlinks (symbolic links), and these work OK. One option is to manually delete these files. If this works and they don't come back, good. If not, would you be open to more troubleshooting like running a special build of BleachBit or screen sharing (Skype)?

Let me know...
