    Deleted files still appears in windows Explorer

    I have deleted so many files in windows explorer but they are still appearing there. When I move to different directory and come back again, those files disappears. Is there any way to configure the windows explorer so that deleted files disappear immediately after the deletion?

    your problem is very different and definitely because of virus..if you face this problem recently then you should opt for system restore..

    or

    install an anit virus program like Microsoft security essential, this is a free antivirus program provided by Microsoft for their customers..you can even use avast, avg,..

    also install advanced system care in your system. this will do lot of things in one go like fragmentation, cleaning up old junk files, temp files, disk clean up, shortcut fixer, empty folder deletion, etc..

    iam sure that your problem will be solved by using MSE and Advanced system care..


    happy to help ypu

    Re: Deleted files still appears in windows Explorer

    My dear friend actually the deleted files are appearing because they are not just simple files but they are system files.So you can't delete them and if you do they will be recreated because your system need them for proper running.But usually these type of files take very low memory space so i think that they won't create any problem for you in the future.So i would advise you to leave them as such.
    Good luck!!!

    Dear friend,

    Which files are you deleting? If youíre deleting $Recycle bin$, $system$ folders or similar files then you are deleting system files from the drives. They will reappear again because they are needed for Windows Explorer.
    Your system may be infected with viruses. Virus files reappear again after deleting them (not all viruses but in some). In this case you should scan your system thoroughly with an anti-virus program.
    You can use following utilities that can delete the files completely from your hard disk:
    1. Eraser
    2. Delete Doctor
    3. SDelete
    And similar more.

    Thanks!
