    I have Norton System Works 2003 on Windows XP. I have tried several different instructions for removing the Norton Recycle Bin and restoring the regular Recycle Bin but none of them have worked. I've typed commands in DOS, I've changed the settings in the Norton Recycle Bin using Properties, but to no avail. Any help is appreciated, thank you. [email protected]

    Right click on the recycle bin, select properties, select standard recycle bin, apply, ok.

    Do you have any other Norton programs installed? I had to change a setting in Norton Utilities also.

    When you're deactivating the Norton Recycle Bin, you should FIRST reduce it's drive usage to 0%, apply the changes, and only then turn off the protection. I just turned it off, and I still had a bunch of space locked into files that were in the Protected Recycle Bin.

    My recycle bin now does read "Recycle Bin" like it used to. But I just deleted a file, and it isn't in the Recycle Bin.

    If my Recycle Bin disk usage is set to 0%, could this be the reason why a deleted file doesn't show up there?

    Yep, my recommendation is to reduce the Norton Protected Recycle Bin usage to 0%, NOT the standard Recycle Bin usage!
