I tried to use the windows xp recovery console but it won't even come up. I feel like my computer is possessed. Could all my troubles be due to the wireless service being on all the time. I guess I just need help to get started in the right direction as I have just messed things up worse.

Your best bet is to boot up your Win install CD and perform a repair install... this should fix your OS instabilities at least.
Be sure to run your spyware/malware removal tools from Safe Mode.
You need to get yourself a firewall, Win Firewall at the least, Zone Alarm or Black Ice are good free software firewalls, or a router or switch with integrated firewall.
I use a spare PII computer running Smoothwall, a linux-based firewall application with proxy capability, so essentially I have a standalone firewall appliance.

Is there no way to get rid of all those thousands of files in the recycler folder? I guess first things first.

Before uninstalling sp2 the message said downloading had stopped due to an unstable system. What can I do now. I have downloaded the software recommended, spybot, adaware, and sygate firewall to go along with my mcafee. Things are running a little better but it really bugs me that I cannot get those updates loaded from microsoft.

Now for the original question, how can I get rid of all those useless files in my recycler folder. Every pic I have ever looked at on a website is in it along with other stuff I just do not need. You said that if I tried to delete it would just copy them. There has to be a way to get rid of them forever.

Open up your Local Drive (C:/)
Hilight all the files
Hold shift and press the Delete key
Make sure you hold shift...otherwise the files just go right back where they are.
These Files are temporary I know, but they clear up a hell uv a lot of disk space. I was down to 4 gigs, but now its up at 8.
Not sure if that will help but just thought I would throw that in.
