Windows 7: Virus on C:\$Recycle.Bin

Virus on C:\$Recycle.Bin

Hello! I run an In-Depth scan on my laptop using my ESET Smart Security. And it found suspicious object in [C:\$Recycle.Bin]. The full path for the virus is:
Code:
C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-2700874334-3120927317-1481833869-1000\$REAV2RD\NERO20131016143800644\ISSetupPrerequisites\opencandy\OCSetupHlp.dll - Win32/OpenCandy potentially unsafe application - action selection postponed until scan completion
After scanning, it didn't clean or quarantine the object. So I have to show hidden and protected files and folders to delete the virus. Unfortunately, I can't go the $Recycle.Bin because the system prohibits my access. What is this file and what should I gonna do to delete this file?

Something to try

Open an elevated Elevated Command Prompt: Elevated Command Prompt

Type:

RD /S /Q C:\$Recycle.bin

Press Enter

Then right click desktop and choose "Refresh"

That should do the trick but you might need to reboot for it to take effect.


Other than that you might want to start another thread on how to remove all trace of OpenCandy from your machine if you suspect that it hasn't been fully removed.

Thanks! I tried it! But what happened is it was gone. I mean the folder C:\$Recycle.Bin was now gone on my drive C. I enabled view of hidden files and folders. But it's gone. I try to tick it's folder on my Antivirus. But the folder's really really gone..
I didn't make a restart yet. Will it be back when I restart my PC? Thanks!

Refresh Desktop

Did you refresh your desktop?

Other than that just reboot and a new (empty and reset) recycle bin should be created - unless the problem lies within the recycle bin for a different user!

As for the detection by your AV - just run another scan. If you want help on checking if all remnants of OpenCandy have been removed you'll need to start another thread in Security section where you'll get advice on the tools needed.
