@RohanRao Welcome. Can you please try this :

  • Run CMD as ADMIN
  • Execute command  “rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin” (without quotes)
  • Close CMD > Reboot
  • Proceed with a full Kaspersky scan > Reboot

Hi @Berny,

I am currently experiencing the same problem and I am unable to fix the issue with the solution you provided. So, here’s what I did;

  • Ran  “rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin”
  • Ran  “rd /s /q D:\$Recycle.bin”
  • Ran  “rd /s /q E:\$Recycle.bin”
  • Close CMD + Reboot
  • Full Scan + Vulnerability Scan + Reboot

However, the problem is still there.

Is there any other ways I can try here?
Or any suggestion is appreciated.
