You have a virus. i encountered the same problem on a HP Pavillion desktop, its a trojan type virus that hides in your recycler folder, you need to run Avira Anti Virus, its the only one ive found that can get rid of it, you can get it free at or you can reformat your harddrive and do a clean re install of windows but then you lose everything on your pc. try running avira, if that doesnt work you may want to consider reformatting. the recycler folder is supposed to be in windows but the virus hides itself in the folder, im not exactly sure what it does but i know it will restrict your access to the c drive until you remove it, you cant just delete it either, it will show back up in like 2 minutes, also be careful with flash drives, removable usb storage, it will put itself on those drives also and infect other computers that you plug them in to unless you remove it from the flash drive then disconnrct the flash drive but be quick so it doesnt re appear on the flash.

You can also use ComboFix.exe to remove the malware. Follow the guide and be sure to answer yes to install the Recovery Console. Post the resulting log back here. The log will be saved to C:\ComboFix.exe

As a workaround for accessing your drive until you are clean you can right-click on My Computer and select Explore

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.
