The systems were all mine bought by me. I have no trouble with spyware. I have two machines and both have the same problem since Win 7 was installed on both machines. Why would a bug or virus infect two machines the same way and the recycle bins? One machine is an intel machine and the other is AMD. I would give you the Belaec Advisor info but why bother.

Thanks for trying!

Hello,
Try this:
Decrease the Recycle Bin size to the lowest. Visit Recycle Bin storage size - Vista Forums for how-to.
Use your pc as usual.
Now, since the bin's size has been desecred, the culprit process won't have much space to delete files to the bin and will very likely throw an error/pop-up and this way we may find the culprit.
Or if your even brave, tick the box 'Do not delete files to recycle bin' or similar and see if any pop-up appears.

i don't understand why the op can not post the files in a report to us to see why he has so many files in the bin so we can establish what is going on what is causing the bin to fill up maybe male-ware or a virus ? is there not a cmd in elevated cmd promt to get a report? i am sure there is or can he not get into safe run and see there?

I know only of this one:

Code:
dir C:\$Recycle.Bin /s /b >> recyclebin.txt
But the filenames in output are garbled very much like code names, couldn't get it working the right way, so stopped working on it.
