I have Windows 7 OS.

I got the virus $Recycle through USB device. My antivirus (Norton) could not detect and remove the virus. I gave the PC (desktop) to a professional who claimed that the virus has been removed. He formatted the hard disk and reinstalled the OS. Now when I delete any file it is not seen in Recycle Bin. I do not know where it goes. This problem was there when the $RECYCLE virus was there and it continues still. I doubt whether the virus was removed or it is still there.

Can any one guide me.

I think you may have the option to delete files permanently without sending them to the recyle bin.

 

If you go to your recycle bin on your desktop, right click and go to properties, you can decide to send deleted files either to the recycle bin or to remove them permanently.

Thanks for this response.

Will this tell MS not to create a recycle bin in my external media?

Note
Removable drives do not use or have a Recycle Bin. Files deleted from removable drives are permanently deleted instead.

But there is a recycle file sitting in my external hdd.  I did not create it.  Does this  mean that it is a virus?
