cacj,

Not sure what you mean about the Recycle Bin, it should be on your desktop, if you empty it and it still shows thats its full that could be a windows problem.

Remove these with HJT, you will have to shutdown AVG Anti Spyware or it may not let you remove them.

All Panda found were a cookie and a legit file related to HP Printer Recovery. :thumbup:

You can try this, let me know if it helped, if not you can post to our other forum for OTHER COMPUTER PROBLEMS


Depending on how your manufacturer set up your system you may or may not need your Windows XP CD.
  • Click Start>Run
  • Type in sfc /scannow, hit Enter.
  • Note: there is a space between sfc and /scannow
  • This should replace any corrupted/missing system files and will hopefully fix things.
    You may need your XP disc in your CD drive for this.

How did I get infected in the first place ? Read these links and find out how to prevent getting infected again.


Here are some free programs to install, don't leave home without them
  • Spybot Search and Destroy 1.4
    Check for Updates/ Immunize and run a Full System Scan on a regular basis.
  • Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06
    Check for Updates and run a Full System Scan on a regular basis.
  • Spyware Blaster It will prevent most spyware from ever being installed.
  • Spyware Guard It offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • Win Patrol This program will warn you when any changes are being made to your system and give you the option to deny the change.
  • IE-Spyad
    IE-Spyad places over 4000 web sites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • Firefox 2.0 It has more features and is a lot more secure than IE. It is a very easy and painless download and install, it will no way interfere with IE, you can use them both.
  • Zone Alarm Here is a free Firewall from Zone Labs, I wouldn't access the internet without it.
Thanks for stopping by Tom Coyote , I'm glad I was able to help you. :D Let me know if the above fix helped at all.
