Recently, I'm having a strange problem with the Recycle Bin...
When I click on [Empty Recycle Bin], it shows the number of files to confirm (for instance 20). I click [Yes] and it empty all of them except for 13. I can not see those files in Exploring the RECYCLED folder.

Now, I can't even see the recently deleted files. When I moved a file to the recycle bin, the whole file will be gone!

If I click again on  [Empty Recycle Bin], it shows 13 files to delete. I click [Yes]. It does the sound of deleting but the icon of Recycle Bin stays the same.

Can anybody tell me how to get back to normal functionning of the Recycle Bin?

Thank you very much

Hi jaslee77
There is a new host infection out there and it seems to have similar effects on the Recycle Bin.
Just out of curiosity could you Download and install:  HiJackThis 1.99 .

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents,as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, use "Save Log" button, save the log in a text file, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis. Copy and paste a log in here for a moderator to look at.

Hi Jee,
I've managed to solve this problem using the link that you provide.

Hi Geek girl,
Thanks for your suggestion, I've already posted another thread for the HJT under the Viruses Forum. Because I'm facing some pop-up problem.

Thanks for the effort, greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
Have a nice Christmas!
