and it came with windows 7 OS 64 bit and 4 gb ram and AMD processor and ATI radon HD 3200 graphic card .. and 320 GB hard disc ..

notron anti virus is installed in it for 59 days trail and i updated all my system drivers and antivirus definations

but i found a $recycle.bin and system volume information folder in C root drive and it is not detected by any antivirus

Are you refering to the "Factory Restore Partition" that is setup by HP on your Hard Drive?
Co'z if it is sad to say there is no way to recover it

Your best bet is to use your computer manual to get the answer. I own a Dell computer and with Dell there is a recovery partition, which will restore my computer to the way it was when purchased (D drive). There is also a recovery disc, which will restore my computer to the way it arrived from the factory. It sounds like HP has a similar setup. If so, you can merely use the restoration Disc, to return your factory settings. Any programs or changes made, of course, will be lost. If I am mikstaken about the recovery partition, for a very small charge, you can purchase a recovery disc from HP. These restortation DVD should be supplied with any new computer, but some companies are more interested in making a buck than doing the right thing. In any event, start with your manual, then call the Manufacturer.

If you formatted your recovery partition, then it is gone...Hold on to your restore discs though....

LOL. well recycle bin and system volume information show because you have show hidden files and folders and/or show protected operative system files enabled

They are part of the Windows OS and have to be there hihi.

2nd, formatting your recovery partition due to seeing them is just L O L ... NOOB.com sorry to say... well funny to read though.

But cheer up kiddo, do a full factory recovery from the disks and they SHOULD put back the factory recovery partition!

If not, come back in a months time when I release suck hopefully and for abt 15 dollars, you can use suck on one machine to set up your own home OEM recovery partition.

there would be this week but in a months time or so I plane to release a program which will do it for you mate.. and it is far better than an OEM recovery partition, as its exactly like it bar you decide yourself HOW you want your base recovery windows to look like instead of OEM's decision on which programs are installed etc.

Like Richard said, if you made the recovery Disk(s) then you should be OK.. because the recovery disk (should) bring EVERYTHING back.including the recovery partition the (D) drive.

Hope this Helps..and Happy Holidays

Easiest is to ask HP for an installation disk which they usually provide for a S&H fee ($20 last time I looked). That restores the system and the recovery partition.
