    Recycle Bin Not Working (XP w/SP1)

    Deleted files don't go to the recycle bin. I have Window Washer Pest Control, AdAware6 & Spybot installed and checked them all to see if I checked anything that would cause this problem. Nada.

    Can't find solution in any of the the 'Help Center' tabs or in lounge postings.

    Any suggestions? Thanx!

    It sounds like it has been "turned off".

    To see if it has been turned off, right click on the Recycle bin on the desktop. Select Properties.

    There is a check box that says "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted." Make sure that this is unchecked.

    Your Recycle Bin shoud work after that.

    Thanx for the tip Bryan. Shudda noted that I did do that before I posted and it is unchecked. Any other thoughts?

    Do you have Norton Utilities installed by any chance?

    It may be that Norton's Protected Recycle Bin is taking over. Try running the Unerase Wizard and see if there are any files there.

    Other than that, I have no idea.
