Recycle Bin won't stop dumping itself

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by micheleisfree, Jul 26, 2007.

  1. Recycle Bin dumps when it feels like it without prompt. Properties has a big
    cache and directly deleting files is NOT checked. Please help!

    If you right click it and chose properties you can see if there is a tick in
    auto empty or not.

  3. Do not move files, immediately delete is NOT checked.

  4. It's NOT? NO! Why is it NOT?

    (Check it, click OK, go back in, uncheck... pray for a miracle)

  5. Nope, nothing's working. I'll never touch another optimizing program again.

    The Recycle Bin empties itself even though the "immediately delete" under
    Properties is NOT checked. The Temporary Internet Files dump themselves
    though it's not supposed to, and History disappears though it's supposed to
    be saved 20 days.
    .... Heavy sigh ...
    Anyone else have an idea, other than throwing the computer in the pond,
    'cause I thought of that ...

    What optimising program?

    Try a system Restore. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools> System Restore.

    Also, download a program called "Spybot Search & Destroy", do the updates on
    it, then scan your computer if you have installed a "dodgy" program from

  7. It was PC Pitstop.
    Odd, I had NOT selected to make the changes,--and you have to pay for
    changes, which I did not--but it made the changes anyway.
    I'm cruising PC Pitstop's website for help as well.
    Thanks for your time.

  8. I did do a non-Destructive System Restore, but those changes are still there.
    I'm trying to avoid a full wipe of the hard drive.
