Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

Folder won't delete

I have two folders on my desktop that won't delete. I delete them by putting one folder in the other and put it in the recycle bin. Minutes later it reappears.
also if I try to delete it outright I get a loud noise and it says I can't delete it.
I checked for viruses and I don't seem to have one. This is on my Laptop, I guess it could happen on any computer.

Have you tried program called Unlocker. Unlocker will kill all processes using that folder and delete it. You can see which process was killed.

The folders you refer to are trying to connect to the internet to be used as clones or some sort of programme.

Start your pc in safe mode(press F8 on start up) and then select start windows in vga or safe mode and when the desktop appears use the administrator account to log on and then right click on the folders and delete them from your desktop, then restart your pc

I have deleted Recycler\6dc09d8d.exe from my Maxtor external hard disk, now i cant access all the folders in it.please advise


If you have deleted a folder or program from the recycler its gon forever. thats why windows put it there for futre recovery if you need it perhaps. so if you delete recycler you delete everything in it with it.

I want to delete -Boxbe Waiting List-folder forever.


where is this Boxbe Waiting List located??? in your yahoo mail, or on your desktop? if its on yahoo mail, just go to your yahoo mail, look for the folder list that you have, click on edit folders, then it will give you options to delete (or rename) a folder.

if that folder is on your desktop, just right click on the folder then choose delete or put to recycle bin then empty recycle bin and its gone forever. ;)

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.

Unable to save my word documents when I click on save


If it was truely a shortcut and was deleted, the data is still in the folder on the hardrive (c:) and can be accessed with the file manager or exploring the c: (root) drive. once you find it , right click on it , select "make shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop.
If it was a folder (not a shortcut) on your desktop that was deleted, you should be able to find the folder in your Recycle Bin and select it and click on RESTORE and that should put it back where it was .
If it was a folder and deleted and the recycle bin was emptied, it is lost unless you pay someone HIGH dollar to retrieve data from your harddrive that was deleted.
Hope this fixes ya up , post again if you need further assistance.

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize

  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
