There are so many items there that are not answered or told to us that we
cannot make that decision or give you a definitive answer based upon the

The first thing to be done is to check the integrity of the drive. Look in
the system log files and see if you see any disk errors. This will be a
major cause of you right clicking on a file and choosing delete and it not
going to the recycle bin. Now if it is going but it comes back then yes you
may have a rogue program or a viral infection.
If you would like to know more about this, please post in my forum:
