My recycle bin says Norton protected Recycle Bin But i have uninstalled norton a long time ago n wen i click

on my recycle bin it says in a pop up window


This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the

Folder Options control panel.

So i was wondering how i can get my recycle bin back and wat happen.


Thank you im a very inexperienced computer user



Thanks for any help. :thumbsup:

What happens when you double click on the icon for Recycle Bin? Not having "properties" tells me either the shortcut is dead or the Recycle Bin is corrupt or missing.

Sounds like associations are messed up or the recycle bin is corrupt.

Uninstall Norton through Add Remove programs. Also uninstall Live Update and Live Advisor. Reboot only when all three have been uninstalled. You might need to run the Norton removal tool.
Reboot

Test the recycle bin. Create a wordpad file. Then delete it.
See what happens.

If that doesnt work rebuild the recycle bin. It is propably damaged.

Damaged Recycled Folder
The Recycled folder itself can become damaged. Files are moved to the folder and the Recycle Bin on the desktop appears full, but you cannot view the contents and the Empty The Recycle Bin command is unavailable. Deleting this folder and restarting Windows will re-create this folder and restore functionality:
Restart to a command prompt.

Type attrib -s -h recycled.
Type del recycled.

Restart the computer.

See what happens then.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Step One
Download and run the Norton Removal tool from here

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...005033108162039

Click the link and follow the instructions.
Do NOT reinstall your Norton products!

After you have done that post back
In the beginning there was the command line.
