JoergZ Unsecure programs in folder $recycle.bin, not possible to open folder

Hi everybody.

There are seven programs inside the mentioned folder which are old and unsecure (and already updated to the newest version in the program files folder). It is not possible to open the folder. After clicking on the folder icon inside Secunia, it says the folder does not exist.

A restart of the system didn't help. The system recycle bin is empty. I tried to delete the unused space of my drive with a software called Eraser, but Secunia is still showing the unsecure programs.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Joerg

The Recycle Bin can reside in multiple places and if you try to clean them and you do not have permission because of using a Limited account then the failure to clean them is understandable.
