Recycle bin F$#@%r
I did a quick search on this file name and found nothing.. so if there is another thread please PM me and I will delete this..
I remember someone complaining about having an undeletable file on their computer a while ago.. found this on a popular Warz/hacker site... It dosent appear to be a virus.. but it would be a bloody pain... I felt like running it on my "dumass" machine to see how much trouble it would be.... but why bother... one of my clients will bring it in soon enough..

Recycle ****er - Creates an undeleteable file to screw up the recycle bin. This is a tool that creates a file, moves it into the recycle bin, then
makes it undeleteable leaving a message that you select as its filename. The file is also made invisible to dos, meaning getting rid of recycle ****er is
a real bitch unless you know what you are doing. Only works on win9x and possibly ME - definately not working on xp/2k. By <Leeter_Than_U>
