Whenever I single left click on an icon, file, or folder a repetitive popup appears asking if I want to send whatever I clicked on to the recycle bin. The item is sent to the recycle bin regardless.

I've tried every virus,trojan remover free or paid to no avail. As far as registry repair tools go, I learned my lesson long ago to stay away from them.

glary utility, like all registry cleaners, does not fix or replace missing registry files. It removes "unnecessary" files which do nothing to improve the registry. There is no reason to remove these files and doing so could damage the registry.
Trust me I know.
Thanks anyway.

thanks for posting your fix...i had exactly the same problem and knew it wasn't virus or reg related as i'd done a factory reset....gave the delete button a whack (replacing the keyboard wasn't an option as it's a laptop) and hey presto! worked like a dream!
