You should not delete this folders in any circumstances, as those are system folders used by your operating system.

They are also hidden folders, so if you want to get rid of them, you will have to make Windows to not display hidden folders.
Go to Tools -> Folder Options in Windows Explorer, open View page and check Do not show hidden files and folders.

    RECYCLER and System Volume Information are system folders. Folders cannot create files, they can only contain them. C drive is probably your system and boot drive, so it must have several .sys, .ini and .com files which are needed by operating system to operate correctly. Deleting these files and folders will result in operating system crash, followed by inevittable reinstallation of the system. These files and folders are not harmful and the procedure to hide them is explained in my solution.

    Tampering any system hidden file or folder might result in operating system failure and possible loss of data.

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.

1st: Go to Tools>Folder Options>View>unckeck this items below:

continue this proccess for all drives where you can see RYCLER folder

NOTE ADDED: This site is listed by McAfee Site Advisor as a potential source of adware and malware.

another answer::::::::::::::::::::::::

Use a batch file (Example.bat) to change it from to a non hidden and a non read only file. It will convert it to a deletable folder and delete it. Do not delete the Autorun file because I found that the virus changed one of my documents to the autorun.
@Echo off
ATTRIB -S -A -H -R
Pause
Then if no errors come up after running the batch right click on RECYCLER folder and click delete.
Make sure the Batch is in the drive not the subdirectry.
(Example) - DriveLeter>Example.bat
Hope this helps : )


Please note that the following advice if taken will absolve me from any responsibility. I am only reporting what I did to get rid of the virus installed on my hard drive.

1. You should be able to see your root drive root drive which is c: or d: etc.

2. Ensure that you are able to see hidden files by going to Tool>Folder Option>view and checking off hidden files.

3. System Volume Information and Recycler should be visible in your root drive (c: d: or whatever drive you use)
4. Right Click on Recycler folder and go to Properties.

5. Go to the tab labeled Security, If your user name is not there then add your username that you use for XP . Give yourself all security rights as well as the SYSTEM user. Then press okay. If you cannot see the security tab and you are using XP professional then go to Tool>Folder Option>View uncheck box "Use simple File sharing" then select Apply.

6. Right Click on System volume information folder and go to Properties. Repeat step 5.

7. Go to the garbage icon on the desktop and right click. Choose properties then check the box " Do not move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." Press Apply.

8. Go back to the root drive and delete Recycler folder.

9. Go to the System Information folder and delete the last folder. These folders are where Xp has taken a snapshot of your system in order to restore it. The virus is hiding here in the event that you restore it is also restored.

10. You should now open the registry editor and remove the virus from here so that when you restart the virus is not recreated.

11. Open the registry editor. Start >Run> then type regedit in the box and select OK The registry will now open.

12. Hit Ctrl+F Type Recycler in the search box . Delete the entry when found. press F3 to find the next occurrance of Recycler and delete.

13. Close regedit.

14. Go to all installed harddrives and so steps 2- steps 6, steps 8 and steps 9.

15. Run your virus software. You should be able to update any virus software that was previously unupdatable.

16. Reboot your computer

17. Verify that that the reycler folder is deleted from you root drive.

18. Then you can uncheck the box in the garbage that you checked in step 7. To keep all you deleted files in case you need to restore a file that was accidentally deleted.

My findings: This virus is recreated using the methods of the garbage bin. Everytime you delete a file it recreates itself because it looks in the garbage and restores or copies the virus information inside. If the virus is not able to be stored inside and is immediately removed when you check the box in step 7. Then it cannot recreate itself and all of its power is lost. So erasing it from the registry and drive ensures that it cannot return.

-----------------------

I frequently get this headache and finally heartache sooo annoying it had brought too much trouble for me. After installing various kinds of software, running them and so on, I found some of them useful and some of them not at all effective.


Even if we make changes in folder options to view all the files and change various settings, searching through regedit etc or following by some software, in most conditions a typical average user lands in confusion and finally some disaster happens to his system.


I found this simple system to effectively remove Recycler virus - Blam to Recycler virus.


1. Go to Desktop, right click on Recycle bin and select properties.
2. Check (select or put a tick mark) on the square box (Do not move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted)

3. Get File zilla FTP which is free and install. (you dont need to change any file settings)
4. without entering any sort of web address anywhere click the directories in the Local site box.
5. Then each directory will display all the folders below this box with file name, file size, file type and last modified.
6. Now check if RECYCLER folder is there. Then simply delete it.
7. Your job is done.
8. Repeat in all the folders by searching if it is sub folders too.
9. Repeat for each directory ( C D E F ...)


After your job is done again go to desktop, right click on recycle bin and then deselect on the square box.

I am quite convinced that your Task Manager is also disabled? You will no get rid of this Trojan there are various variants of this Trojan it spread through messenger and there (out of experience) is no way of klling it other than the long way around and that is to re-format - considering the vast infenction already incured.

Good luck.

Hello, I am experienceing difficulties with my PC. I can't access to any folders and cant open the start menu.


You might have a Virus. In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.

Recycle bin







1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.

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.
