Hi!

I need some help. When I delete files they are not moved to the recycle bin, instead they are removed immediately. I have NOT checked the box that says that the files will be removed at immediately. My settings say that the deleted files should be moved to the recycle bin. Weird, I thing :tazz:

I have already run Ad-aware, spybot S&D, Microsofts AntiSpyware and Norton.

I dont get it, need help!

Try this:

Right-Click the Recycle Bin -> Properties

Make sure that the box Dont move files to the Recycle Bin is not checked. Hope that this helps.
