Dear sir in my 4gb pen drive i am having a folder which is named recycler and its comes again and again after deleting also. so how to remove that permanently

The Recycler folder is a hidden system directory Windows XP automatically creates on all local drives.

For example, when you highlight a file on the pen drive in Windows Explorer and press the DEL key on your keyboard, the file is not actually deleted. It is moved to the Recycler folder, so it can get restored using the Recycle bin icon on the desktop. The file is physically deleted when the user calls the "Empty Recycle Bin" option from the recycle bin's context menu, or when the recycle bin gets too full. The default maximum capacity is set to 10% of the volume size.

Normally, the Recycled folder is hidden, you'll notice it only if you configure Windows Explorer to show you hidden files. You cannot get rid of it permanently - if you delete it, it gets recreated automatically, as you noticed yourself. This is intended behavior.

Hi, I just received a problem from the recycle bin: When I try to use the function empty recycle bin, the bin pop out window says "confirm multiple file delete" "Are you sure you want to delete these two...

Interesting problem. I'd try this: Open control panel and open Folder Options. Click the View tab and check the box to "Show hidden files and folders". say ok to that and close out back to the desktop. Now look in the recycle bin to see if there are those 2 files in there and try to delete them manually. Also go to and download and install CCleaner (Freeware). Run CCleaner and see if it is able to delete those files. If not, then see if you can right click on those 2 items and choose Restore. Once you have done that I would recommend you do a full virus scan on the pc just in case and also run the ccleaner once again. Hope this helps.

Recycler folder virus

You don't have a virus, you have the folders without an executeable link. Use windows explorer to delete the files you want to get rid of.

Windows XP problem. How to remove a program that is in start up.

Log into Windows Safe Mode. To get to safe mode reboot your computer and start pressing the F8 key repeatedly until the Safe Mode options screen appears. You want Safe Mode which is the first option, not Safe Mode with Networking.
If any user id’s show up select the Administrator, if not don’t worry about it. Once safe mode is up Click on My Computer and open your C: drive. Click on Tools/Folder Options/View. Then click on Show Hidden Files and Folders.
Green AV is normally located by navigating to the following directories: C:\Program Files\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GAV\gav.exe
Delete gav.exe which is the executable module for the virus
Delete mgrdll.exe this is the messenger for gav that keeps sending you the messges and popups
Delete the folder GAV (just hit your back arrow one time to get back to folder Application Data then you will be able to see and delete folder GAV
Right Click on your Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin or Double Click on your Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin
Now just reboot your machine!

Recycler folder

The recycler folder is a system file, it is created automatically as a place holder for files you send to the recycle bin. As far as I am aware, the only way to stop it being created is to turn of the recycle bin for each drive you have.......Doing this has the effect of permently deleting files though......

Delete RECYCLER folder

Right click the recycle bin in 'my computer' or on the desktop and goto the properties. You may then configure the recycle bin for each drive or turn it off altogether. Once it is turned off for a particular drive you may remove the recycler folder (ignore the warning) it will not re-appear again when you delete files.
