I am on Vista Home edition for a few years already and never had a problem but for a few weeks my recycle bin empties by itself overnight and sometimes during the day. The recycle bin properties are set to hold the deleted items sent to it. I would manually empty at will but not any more. What happenned to cause this changhe?

The anti-virus/spy-ware etc software on the system is from Rogers, our cable & internet provider. This gets updated all the time. I had Eset before but it conflicted with the Rogers' service. With Eset, I never worried. It was better than Norton. Eset was paid in full a long time ago then suddenly then wanted more money.

From what I can tell from Rogers site, you are using Norton security. By digging around in there, I also found a few people with the same complaint and the reasoning was because they (Rogers) fixed a bug that left a few files (.tmp files) in the recycle bin but the aftermath of the fix was that it would automatically delete everything in your recycle bin daily.

I would suggest temporarily disabling your av and see if the problem persists. There are plenty of free av programs out there to choose from.
