I was about to empty my waste basket, but it was already empty, later I discovered all the deleted files when to c:\Recycled, but with it's name changed to DC plus a number (DC1, DC2, DC3 and so on) I know it's the same file, 'cause the type and size coincide

I had AVG Antivirus, but it never detected a thing, so I downloaded a Trial Version of MCAfee and it found the RedLof virus, it say it cleaned all the files, and it deleted the ones it couldnt clean

But the problem with the files and the waste basket hasnt stop at all, even if MCAfee says the PC has no virus now

Also, I tried to uninstall AVG later, but it wont let me, it shows me this error message

Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for file setup.exe: creating backup....
Acceso denegado. (5) %DESTINATION% = "C:\Archivos de programa\Grisoft\AVG Free\setup.exe.install_backup", %SOURCE% = "C:\Archivos de programa\Grisoft\AVG Free\setup.exe"

You have no problem with your Recycle Bin. It's the way Windows works. Files in the Recycle Bin of Win98 are actually stored in the hidden folder C:\Recycled, but their filenames change to D (presumably meaning Delete or something of the sort), plus your drive letter (in your case, C), as well as a number. The file extension remains the same. So in your case you may ave seen a file in the folder with the name DC1.exe. It's the original file, just with a different name.

Now, the Recycle Bin works by deleting the file pathways, thus disabling access to the files in their original location. They are kept in the Recycled folder until new data overwrites the spots on the hard drive where these files are stored.

If I'm confusing you, Wikipedia has a good explanation on the page "Recycle Bin (Windows)".

As to your issues with uninstalling AVG...I don't know. Have you tried both AVG's uninstaller and the Windows uninstaller (in the Control Panel under Add/Remove Programs)?

Yap, I tried accessing the c:\Recycled dir in some other computer, and it leaded me to the recycle bin

But in my case it's displayed as any other folder (it doesnt have the "empty recycle bin" or "restore" buttons) and it wont let me delete anything from there either, and when I open the Recycle bin in the desktop, it appears empty, even if there are files in C:\recycled. I was able to delete the files from MS-DOS, though there are some folders there and they wont get deleted no matter what I do. Is this information relevant, or it's just me being too paranoid by now?

Concerning AVG, I tried both uninstallers, and it always show up the same message :whistling:

Concerning the C:\Recycled question, you're being a bit paranoid.

Concerning AVG uninstalling, I can't answer that one.

HERE is a link to the AVG forum and a possible answer for uninstalling AVG.
And, yes, sometimes you have to re-install to be able to uninstall.

C:\Recycled is NOT your Recycle Bin. You sound a little confused at the difference between the two.

As far as your PC cares, the stuff in C:\Recycled doesn't exist. You should be like your PC and consider it to not exist as well. You'll quickly find that one day after installing something you might be missing the files in there and you'll be wondering where they went. But that's the way it works.

It's like this...the data will still be physically stored there until overwritten by other data. It looks like it's taking up the space but don't worry about it.
