c:\recycler\S-1-5-21-129_ ... Dc775.zip

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My AV software (CA's EZ-Trust) tells me I have -
c:\recycler\S-1-5-21-129_...and_a_huge_string_of_numbers...\Dc775.zip<ref
7119606.exe>
The software doen't delete it, although that is the setting, and I
can't find the file.

Can someone help me get rid of this, please?

Empty the recycle bin for that account - better still, empty the recycle bin
in ALL accounts.

It's not in the Recycle Bin.  As I said, I can't find it. And the path
is recycler, not recycle.

Re: c:\recycler\S-1-5-21-129_ ... Dc775.zip

\Recycler IS the recycle bin!

Have you checked the recycle bin for ALL accounts??

Have you tried scanning while in Safe Mode? - from ALL accounts??
Have you checked the Administrator account (which by default is only
accessible from Safe Mode?)

Ho-kayyy - emptying the Recycle bin took care of biznizz, thanx (why
do they call it recycleR?) but I'm still aggrieved the AV didn't
delete it.

Re: c:\recycler\S-1-5-21-129_ ... Dc775.zip

There are two places that AV's are not allowed to tough -
1) the System Restore archive
2) the Recycle bin
Simple as that

NOD32 is allowed to touch the recycle bin, there's no reason an AV
shouldn't, it's just a hidden directory. If AV were to be excluded from
here it would be an easy and hidden way for malware to hide, whereas the
System Volume Information folder is only accessible by SYSTEM by default,
which reduces the chances of malware being able to write there.

Sorry - you are right in that (I was in a hurry at the time) - but.....
In NT-based systems the AV may not (probably does not) have sufficient
rights to access the recycle bins for other users, and therefore you will
get this 'error' report.

I did think to myself "...or is it just because I've altered something?" :-)

The message should be: "If you run as a non-administrator the computer is
less prone to collapse and hence your other half might not find you're
surfing naughties."

So does McAfee.

You can't see the folder and files under <d:>\Recycler because Explorer
handles "special" folders differently (usually by hiding them although
sometimes the view is altered).  You'll need to use a DOS shell with cd
and dir commands with the appropriate command-line switches (like "dir
/ad" to see directories and "dir /ah" to see hidden files).  The "Empty
Recycle Bin" property when you right-click on the Recycle Bin desktop
icon may not completely empty the <d:>\Recycler folder(s).  In your
case, probably the easiest way to empty the Recycle Bin is to use
CCleaner (aka CrapCleaner).  It adds a context menu item for it so you
can easy run it (besides the Start menu group that gets added).

And so what?  The *path* is <d:>\Recycler.  The *name* is Recycle Bin.

After getting another one, I suddenly thought me of  -
nswp.com
So I ran cmd and used nswp   All went well, but it *does* take time to
recall the commands.  Quite enjoyed it really - took me all the way
back to my CP/M days...
