I had an aborted installation of Norton System Works 2003 on my computer; parts wouldn't install, and the parts that did would not work. I uninstalled, but for a while the computer thought that Norton was protecting my Recycle Bin. I got that to go away, but today when I checked my fragmentation there was an otherwise-invisible C:RecyclerNPROTECT folder that was heavily fragmented and taking up a considerable amount of space. I then specifically scanned the recycle bin for viruses and there were quite a few files in it even after presumably emptying it. How can the bin be completely cleared out, not just the visible files but everything?
