I was recently infected with VX2, but when it installed, it disabled my recycle bin somehow, the only way I can delete stuff is directly without it going to the recycle bin, the only reason I use the recycle bin is because I nuke it with Zilla Data Nuker at the end of each day to truly get rid of it.
Any way does any one know how to Enable/Disable the Recycle Bin.

If you can see the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop you can right click and select properties. You then have an option to use it or not and to set the size. Best to go with the defaults.

O wait, I just got home and went to properties for my recycle bin, and it was already checked so that anything I delete goes the Recycle Bin, I will go and try that restore bin link thanks.

Part of the problems I experienced with the Datanuker, involved what you describe.
Thats why I hesitate to list it as a good app.

My experiences with Zillasoft led me to find answers.
I didn't.
I reformated/reloaded winXP pro.

I did post this very same set of questions at their support forum today, though.

------------ certainly some questions --------------

As a person who experienced problems with Zillasoft products,
which I downloaded free a few days after installing Mozilla,
and understanding that for months now I have not found a definitive answer
to whether I fouled up my PC or the "Datanuker" and "ZillapopupKiller"
were designed to behave in a fashion that ends up doing just that...

Let me say that the owner of STOPZilla has made me an offer I can't refuse.
Even if the 100 programs are gone,
I feel as though he has acted in such a way as to demonstrate (if not illuminate)
an unhappy Catch 22 aspect of present-day LIFE ON THE NET.
We run at an everincreasing faster rate.
Doing what a few years ago was virtually impossible.
We learn fast, and emote strongly at a similar pace, it seems.

I search for references to "zilla" and I get "the three faces of eve".
I would wish no problems onto others,
especially of the kind I've dealt with.
They have made me learn, uncomfortably so... often.
I make my comments in such a way so I will remember them, myself.

Thank you, Mr. DeSapio.
Thank you,
and many others I'm sure I owe.
Mike, and those who endure the daily questions...
Good or Bad. Maybe....
