  1. Hello from the Czech republic, I hope you'll be able to help me here..
    I have a problem with trojan, or some stuff like that.. After i choose to empty the recycle bin and confirm, there appears a message like - "cannot delete dd6, the folder is not empty".. Have you any clue what to do with that? I have formated system hard disk and reinstalled W XP, but the problem still remains.. Thanks!!!

    How could you possibly have the same Recycle Bin as in a previous installation?
    Instead of formating the system partition - which I can't imagine you've done for the above reason - you could try deleting the contents of the bin from DOS prompt. Make sure you are not connected to the internet while you do that.
    But perhaps you are best advised to find out what is giving you all that trouble before you delete anything. Google "dd6 recycled" for example, this problem is not unheard of.

    Problem solved

    Thanks for help,
    seems to me it was a disk-surface problem, the solution was more then easy - I only backed up and formated my second hard drive and everything is ok now. However, many thanks for your tips!

    Disk surface...I don't understand.
    I guess formatting solves a lot of problems... :rolleyes:
