    Hi, a few months ago i made the mistake of installing tuneuputilities. Then i wanted to remove it but couldn't find it in the add/remove bar. So i ****-deleted it and now i can't open my recycle bin. everytime i tried opening it, i would be asked to choose a programme to open it with.

    I don't know how much damage to your recycle bin, or your whole operating system for that matter, that program did. You should never use that type of software. It won't help you, and you'll end up having to reinstall Windows.


    Not sure if it will be enough, but try THIS.

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Restart the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file (in Notepad), right-click the file (before opening it) and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    Well what do you know... I have to admit I was skeptical, but I'm glad it worked! (y) :D
