Each time I delete something it doesn't goto the recycle bin instead it is automatically permamently deleted. I've ran anti virus and spyware in safe much. When I goto recycle bin options they are greyed out. I also have limited file acess on an admin account and I've created a new account and had the same results. Also my ability to make "New folders" is also missing from the right click on desktop and anything else. If possible a step by step guide to reinstall

Hi koyoto :)

Right-click on your Recycle Bin and select Properties. Take a screenshot of that properties window and post it here please so I can see it.

It seems like there's instructions to fix that issue (and under Windows Vista as well). Here they are:

Let me know if you have any problem with a step to complete.

You already deleted the $Recycle.Bin folder and it didn't change anything? Just read your last sentence in the first post, you want to reinstall Windows Vista?

Currently downloading an imagine file for it and I used some sort of script to give me the key for whatever I'm running so I will try a full system reboot but there is no $recylce bin in my C file yet there is a recyle bin on my desktop I believe the issue is resolving around my inability to create new folders at all is my assumption. I'm due a system wipe but I wanted to at least try to resolve the issue manually to save hassle

Are you saying that you are using an illegal install of Windows?  What script are you referring to?  The only scripts which provide license keys...are all illegal.

Sorry koyoto we had doubts after your last sentence since it could imply that you are using an illegal method to activate your Windows system. Are you done downloading that Windows Vista .iso? If so, do you know what to do with it after or not? The installation process is really easy I can walk you throught it if you need.

Alright, do you have the Windows Vista image file downloaded? Do you have it burned on a DVD, or bootable a USB Flash Drive yet?

You can use ImgBurn. Be sure to not accept the promotional offer in it (not that it matters if you reinstall Windows). Also, set the burning speed at a low speed, like x2 or x4 to make sure that the image burns correctly.
