RECYCLER and System Volume Information are Windows' system folders and should not be deleted in any circumstances.

Folder resycled is a folder created by a virus, and these folders should not be mistaken.

If you want your operating system to stay alive, do not alter system files unless you know what exactly are you doing. Since you are asking how to delete these files, you obviously don't.

Thanks.

What antivirus do you have? most of them can easy remove it... i had the sam problem... but here is a list of antivirus programs, i know that they can remove it:
Norton Antivirus, and internet security
Kaspersky Antivirus, and internet security
ESET Smart security /can only stop these virus from coping itsepf on the PC, but can not delete it if you install it later.../

as i know Recycler is not that dangerous... but it is a pain in the ***... you can also try to delete ot from the registry /in safe mode/

Hi Guyz This Is Kenreves
well i'm very old victim of  this particular virus
i've already tried lots of Antiviruses such as
1.Symantec
2.Norton
3.Kaspersky
4.AVG
5.Avira
6.ZoneAlarm
7.Avast

but all these are sucks

Only solution for these ***** folders is to

1.boot your system through Win98 Bootabel CD.
2.Start Computer With CD-ROM Support.
3.Move To C:\
4.type "cd recycler/recycled/system~1".
5.type "attrib/s -h -s -a -r".
6.type "deltree ."   >  press "y".
7.follow above steps for System Volume Information Folder too.
8.Also Do Same For all other Drives Like D:\ , E:\ , F:\,
     but you won't be able to remove it from USB Flash Drive,All you have to Fromat it.


don't worry about System Volume Information Folder
it's not necessary for Windows

Cheers Up With Kenreaves!!!!

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.

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.

When i copy any folder in my pen drive and try to copy in my system folder turns to .exe file. I able to see to additional folder autorun.exe and recycler.exe. Help in this regard.


This could be a virus. Go to this web page:
http://threatinfo.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=WORM%5FDELF%2EFMS&VSect=Sn
and click on "Remove this malware automatically", and follow the instructions.
It may also be worth going to the bottom of that page, and running the "online virus scanner", to check if you have any other viruses.

I can not remove viruses from my hard drive ...


"System Volume Information" is not a virus; it is a folder where your system restore points go.
"Thumbs.db" is not a virus but a program windows uses to create thumbnail images.
"Recycler" is not a virus but the location of the recycle bin.

The reason these items are "ghosted" are because they are hidden files; removing these files/folders can have adverse affects on your computer and if you did succeed in removing them, windows will just recreate them because they are not virus related.

If your current antivirus is up to date and running okay, then you don't need to switch. It sounds like you do not have any virii.

Oh and one more thing, please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks!

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.
