  1. I have a virus on my laptop that attempts to place everything I click on into the recycle bin. I have run both windows defender and mcafees and still I am still having problems with it. I recently had a trojan that was found by windows defender called backdoor.win32. I had the trojan removed and I have run all updates and have scanned the laptop several times but I am still having the virus issues.
