Deleted emails keep coming back

Q: Deleted emails keep coming back

I have windows mail on my vista laptop. some messages keep appearing even though I deleted them several times. i followed this as i thought win mail was corrupt but still they keep coming back

Preferred Solution: Deleted emails keep coming back

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Deleted emails keep coming back

I am having trouble sending e-mail. It comes back to me. This has been going on for a couple months and I have contacted other tech help to no avail. I don't get an error message just a postmaster return mail.
I also have trouble sending photos... this all started when our PC was hit by lightening and we had to replace it. Now I have alot of trouble with the email part of it. We use windows 2000 professional

A:emails coming back; cannot send photos

Are all emails returned or just some?

One reason why they may come back is that the addresses are no longer valid or they may be blocked due to infection.

If you are using Outlook Express or another Windows email client, you may not have configured it correctly for your ISP -- you should contact them for information on how to set it up.

>> I've edited your topic title because you do not want to publish your email address -- you will just be a spam target.

Photos are usually sent as attachments, is that how you are doing it? What happens when you try to attach one?

My computer runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

I have been going through my Library directories, (in particular my Document directory), doing some housekeeping. You know the procedure, deleting old files which are no longer relevant and deleting stuff that I no longer want and stuff that somehow I have repeatedly located in different directories, getting everything rationalised and organised.

The sort of files that I am deleting are Word and Excel files, .pdf Adobe files, downloaded program files that I scan prior to installing, zip files and folders and folders containing files - nothing out of the ordinary really!

A couple of days later I notice those damned files that I know I deleted, (and I made sure that the Recycle Bin was cleared out too), have all somehow been reinstated to exactly where I deleted them from.

I repeat the exercise and it happens again!

I don't understand why - it's like the candle you can't blow out!

I'm not sure if the same thing has happened with any other areas of the Library.

I do perform a backup to an external hard drive once a week. The drive is a Seagate and I am using the Seagate backup software, but this shouldn't be causing this - should it? I'm only backing up, I'm not asking for it to restore anything.

Can anyone tell me what is going on and how I can fix it?

Hi granty

Welcome to TSG!

Please do this. Go here http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download Hijack This. Un Zip it and click on the Hijackthis.exe.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

Do NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

Win7 Pro, an HP Officejet AIO self-installed (plug & play) on USB a few weeks ago.   Then the printer was disconnected to send to an "out of office" employee and a different HP - just a color Officejet printer - was plugged in USB &
also self-installed.   The old printer was "deleted" from the "Devices & Printers" but every time the user logs in, the old printer returns like a ghost, its image greyed-out.
I have tried - to no avail - to remove it completely.  I've gone into "print server properties/drivers" and tried o remove the "driver & package" - it fails claiming the AIO is still in use, which of course it isn't.   I saw a post
somewhere that said to remove the USB port in Device Mgr - then reboot - that didn't work either.
HP says since it installed plug & play - without their software - they cannot advise what to do.
So what CAN I do to get rid of this ghost?

A:Deleted printer keeps coming back

In your search box type print management or go to control panel, administrative tools, then printer management. All the printers should be listed there under print servers. You should be able to remove  the printer by right clicking and selecting
delete and once the printer is removed you can try removing the driver as well.

The adware wants to redirect to ourluckysites.com. It keeps creating files in windows 86 folder. Something to do with snarer.dll or kitty, whatever it is.

The adware wants to redirect to ourluckysites.com. After a bunch of effort to purge it, it no longer seems to do changes to my browser, but it still install itself to my laptop everytime i try to remove it. The interval between the adware reinstalling itself seemed random. I usually use roguekiller to remove the adware everytime it comes back. It usually install files named ckafege_ and MIO to program files(x86) and an application named kitty though i'm not sure where it's located. It also used to say something like "snarer.dll cannot be found everytime" it crashes google chrome, though it no longer did that and i don't know why it doesn't show that anymore. Please bare with me here as i'm not an expert on computer and i'm new in this forum. thanks for your help.

Hi. I am running Vista Home Premium version 6.0.6001. I have a Gateway computer that came with Big Fix preinstalled. I have uninstalled Big Fix and used the Big Fix removal tool on their website. I cannot remove the registry key:

c:\program files\Bigfix\bigfix.exe /atstartup HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I am able to delete it but it always immediately clones itself. I have changed my permissions to give myself full control but no matter how many times I delete it, it reappears. I have also tried deleting it in safe mode but it didn't work.

I contacted Big Fix support and they said they no longer provide support for Gateway customers.

I guess it's not really hurting anything but I hate having useless junk in my registry.

Any ideas? Thanks.

A:Deleted Big Fix Registry Key Keeps Coming Back

You more than likely have many leftover registry entries from uninstalling BigFix and is why that one key keeps reappearing.
These orphaned keys from a program uninstall are not a problem with Vista and is why registry cleaners shouldn't be used as they could do more harm than good.
My advice would be to leave it alone.

Firstly, I am new to this website and to the forum and I am fully certain of where to put this thread so I just created this thread here. Sorry for any problems.

Right, I have been having this problem for awhile.

Awhile back I downloaded Utorrent to download songs. At one point I downloaded 2 albums from a band called Tenacious D and this appeared in MY DOWNLOADS folder and the mp3 files didn't work so I decided to delete the folder itself with all the mp3 files in it. The next day I turned on my computer and the folder was on my desktop and the folder contains 2 other folders which are the album folders but they don't contain of anything either. There's no signs of mp3 files.

I keep deleting this file but it always comes back when I restart my computer or log off. I tried uninstalling Utorrent before and deleting it but it still keeps coming back and I have tried deleting the file on safe mode and still the same results.

How do I solve this problem?

A:Files cannot be deleted and keep coming back


What kind of files keep coming back? I ask because Windows has a feature to prevent the deletion of necessary operating system files.

Another possibility is that the files that keep coming back are being generated automatically by an application or operating system component.

If you provide a bit more detail about the types and location(s) of files in question - I might be able to provide more detail.

I went into IE6> Tools> Connections and deleted all the connections (three). I then created a new connection and it worked. I could then simply start IE or Outlook and the new dialer would pop up and I could then click Connect and it worked fine.

This morning, all the deleted dialers are back and the new one I made yesterday is gone. None of the old dialers work, of course.

So, I deleted the old, non-functional dialers again and made the new one again and everything was good again--until this afternoon when I found that all the old dialers are back and the new one that works is gone again.

I am the only one who has admin rights on this XP Home system and no one knows my password and I do not leave the machine with myself logged on. I suspect this has something to do with System Restore; but, I don't know what, exactly.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these old dialers and make then stay gone--and make it keep my new one that works?

Damn, I hate XP!

Depends on the dialers themselves possibly. Are they of an adult nature? If thats the case then spyware is to blame

This has been happening on my mother's computer.  She claims to have deleted files and then they're back the next day.  Then I noticed files that I deleted were also coming back.  This has happened for sure with .bmp files and shortcuts.  These are files that are created by me and deleted regularly.  Haven't noticed any other types returning.  I did a google search, but all I got was results for how to recover deleted files.  Are we the only ones having this problem?

Hello guys,

Scanning my machine using A-Squared Free virus scanner, I keep detecting the three same viruses which are not detected by any other scanner I have been using. Here are the virus names and locations the last time I deleted them:

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{2BC52D86-D09F-4A42-9895-09135D7EFB0C}\RP276\A0049929.exe Objets d?tect?s : Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Delf.bs!IK

Once detected, I choose 'Delete them' and the software deletes the infiected files. Howeverm I restart my machine, perform the scan again to find that the three same viruses have infected three different files each time.

As requested, I have performed the scans requested and kept every other log out of this post but are available if need be. If you need details, please ask.

Hello -

C:\System Volume Information\ is where System Restore's cache is stored. Whatever is in there can't harm you unless you choose to perform a manual restore.
Clearing the cache and setting a new clean restore point should eliminate those problems.

Clear & Reset System Restore's Cache click Start >> Run - type SYSDM.CPL & press Enter
select the System Restore Tab
tick on the checkbox - "Turn off System Restore on all drives"
click Apply
then untick the same checkbox & click OK

I see no other sign of malware in those logs.

I delete a file or multiple files, usually it happens with files of the media type; pictures, videos, music, etc. I will delete the file, and empty the recycle bin just to see the file returns to its original directory a week to a few months later. I've only seen this behavior on Windows 7 machines, all of them I've previously owned has experienced this problem, my computer now isn't any different. I deleted a Xerneas pictures back in May because I already posted it to Twitter, just today, that same image is back into my 'Twitter Upload' folder in the 'My Documents' of my user folder. I have emptied the recycle bin a few different times since, but the file has returned today. I did some searching around and saw that this question has been asked on various forums but no valid answer.

A:Deleted files reappearing (coming back)

Not sure what the problem is here. It may help if you state what steps you have already taken to attempt to resolve the issue.

Recyle Bin (All Drives)

Open an elevated Elevated Command Prompt: Elevated Command Prompt Tutorial


RD /S /Q C:\$Recycle.bin

Assuming that drive C: is your windows partition. If it uses a different drive letter replace C: in the line above with the correct letter.

Press Enter

Repeat the above for all other drives.

Then right click desktop and choose "Refresh"

You might need to reboot and fresh recycle bins will be created.

Other than that try setting all recycle bins to delete files immediately.

Right click the recycle bin icon and choose "Properties". For each drive set it like this:

Question. What's a Xerneas picture?

Also what created this "Twitter Upload Folder" ?

Is that a folder you created yourself or was it created by an application and used as the default save location for images when you use that application? Is anything set to sync with that folder?

MANY items seem to keep coming back after I run programs to delete them. I first ran Spyware Doctor. It said it found over 100 items. I clicked the "Fix" button and it said they were taken off. Once I restarted, however, they all seemed to be back. I did the same thing again in Safe Mode. Same problem. I then got Combfix. Did it first in full mode. Same problem. Then did it in Safe mode. Still the same problem.

Why do these things keep coming back? I have included two files. One is the file requested by the help desk for Spyware Doctor. The other is the final file that Combofix finished with.

A few weeks ago, I found out that my computer had been infected with the Win7 Antivirus. I followed the directions I found here, downloading both the registry file and the RKill program. I followed the directions, ran both files, then updated and ran the Malwarebytes AntiMalware. It found several files that I deleted, rebooted, and it seemed like all was good. A few days later, it popped back up. I did the same routine, running the files and the Malwarebytes, and everything was fine for another day or two... then it popped back up again. It seems like it's still here and just keeps popping back up, no matter what I do. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have 2 registry entries that keep coming back after I delete them. They were part of a virus I am sure. When I start my computer I get 2 rundll errors with there name on it. Can you help me remove them?

A:Deleted entries from registry keep coming back?

Have you performed any recent scans with your anti-virus or any other anti-malware programs? If so, its not unusual to receive such an error when "booting up" after using anti-virus and other security scanning tools to remove a malware infection.RunDLL32.exe is a legitimate Windows file that executes/loads .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules which too can be legitimate or sometimes malware related. A RunDLL "Error loading..." or "specific module could not be found" message usually occurs when the .dll file(s) that was set to run at startup in the registry has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file(s) but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry still remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this. Vista users refer to this link.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry ...

Hi guys,
I checked the forums like many should do before asking, but most say oe or other names I have no idea of. My email is a sbcglobal.net address through yahoo, with internet through ATT. I'm not computer techy, so all those other email programs went over my head,

I had an email that I thought was safe that I "thought" I saved, but it got deleted. Over time the deleted emails were cleared too. (OOOPPPSSSS) I see there are certain programs to run to see if they are on the hard drive somewhere, but like I said I have no idea what email program I fall under. RIght now I have a windows 8 but it could also be on my older computer, which is a vista.

Any way to possibly get it back? Thought if anybody knew it would be you guys, or gals.

Thanks, and have a great day

A:Getting back deleted emails

Are you using web mail access? That is, when in your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) you go to some Yahoo! or att or sbc address to access your mail? If so, the deleted message will not be on either of your computers.

If, however, you are using an email client (Vista's Windows Mail, Thunderbird, etc.) which one(s)?

I've determined that the reason I'm getting a whole lot of duplicate mount points is because of the registry entries in:

I can delete all the "drive" keys I don't want (all the duplicates from H: through Z, reboot the machine and verify that they don't show back up. However, given enough time (a day?), they all show back up again.

This is a Windows 2000 network setup as a domain. Is the server (Windows 2000 Server) forcing the client to put them back in? Or is the server not allowing the client to change it's registry? Would an application put them back in?

Any ideas? I'd greatly appreciate any help on this.

Hello everyone,
I researched this a lot, both here and elsewhere, before asking about this. The solutions either didn't work or didn't seem to apply to my situation so I decided it was time to join and ask about it.

Specifically - the folder is from one of several CDs that I ripped so I could put the music on my MP3 player. I used Windows Media Player and had it put the folders it created on the desktop, then I moved those to the player, put copies on my hard drive and the external hard drive that I use for backups, and deleted the ones on the desktop. But one of them won't stay deleted. Here's what I've tried:

- renaming it and deleting it
- moving it to another folder and deleting it from there
- deleting it using the CMD prompt, with both its full name and the short version (sorry, I don't remember where I got the info to do that), using both DEL and RMDIR
- deleting it using the CMD prompt by dragging the folder to the CMD window (that didn't work, I think there was a syntax error)
- shredding it from the desktop using my antivirus, AVG
- booting to Puppy Linux, which I have on a flash drive, and deleting it in Linux

And of course emptying the Recycle Bin after every attempt. But for some reason the folder keeps reappearing, not right away but later on. I haven't really tracked this but it seems to be just two or three days. It'll be gone for a while and then - it's back.

In reading another thread here just now I began to wonder if maybe this had something to do with ... Read more

A:Folder deleted from desktop keeps coming back - days later


I don't use WMP but a quick search suggests:

Windows Media Player

To set up the ripper, select "Tools," then "Settings" and then finally click the "Rip Music" tab. The ?Rip Music to This Location? section of the window will show where your ripped files will end up. It?s probably in ?My Music.? You can either leave it there; change it to another folder or save it to your ?Desktop? for quick access.

If you set the folder location to your desktop as shown above it could cause the folder to reappear when you run WMP.

I posted this in the Windows 2000 forum but never got a response. I have, however, had better responses from this forum and it's semi-related...So, anyway, here's the issue...

I've determined that the reason I'm getting a whole lot of duplicate mount points is because of the registry entries in:

A:Help! I Already Deleted Spysheriff But This Winstal.exe Keeps On Coming Back Everytime I Reboot...

Hello babyface and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system on this computer.Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1.a site and install Service Pack 1a. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates but do not install SP2 at this time. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system. If you are not on a broadband connection the Service Pack can be obtained from Microsoft for a nominal shipping fee.After all of the updates have been performed post a new HijackThis log back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.Cheers.OT

Ok the first indication I had that there was something wrong is when this XP Antivirus 2009 started popping up and it wouldn't go away. I would have to bring up task manager to get rid of it and close IE. This was shortly after returning home. My oldest grandson had been on the computer while I was gone and no telling what sites he went to and of course he not talking. I do have the computer password protected but I forgot to log off when I left and now I'm paying for it. grrrr

This is new computer and it came with Macafee installed on it and Macafee didn't do squat ugh. So I ditched Macafee and downloaded Avast! Ran thier boot time scanner and ran it again after start up and these are the things they found and put in the chest the several times I've run it.
~tmpc.exe <several copies of this one.. it keeps coming back
There were a couple of files it specifically ask me about in the boot time scan and since I wasn't sure I said "not sure" and it didn't put them in the chest. I guess those files were system files.

I also installed spyware doctor.. geesh could kick myself. I've had it since I got puter but never installed it yet. Ran spyware doctor and it found a lot of stuff and supposedly deleted it too.

I've been having a a problem with the back left corner hinge since October of last year I poisted to another board about this problem hving been told that this issue would be passed onto support in my region. I'm currious as to weather I'll hear from these people in this lifetime or the next. I enjoy my Laptop and would like to continue using it but as time goes on it keeps seperating more and more and I have to snap it back into place to keep in together. I'm hoping to actually hear back from someone this time that will be able to help me in fixing this issue.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

I already posted in How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8
In this thread after the starting post from Tookeri other updates that had to be deleted were mentioned. I made a list in post 841
I did not have all these updates on the pc but those that were on it I hid.
Some of them came back and I hid them again.
Now today they are back - with some that I had not seen before.

I made an attachment that shows them and also shows that I hid them again

Will I have to check Windows Update for the rest of my live?????

Email list from LegacyFamilyTree (L [email protected] was working fine. Then I wanted to join their new list ( [email protected]) so signed up, received the request for verification, clicked on the complete email addy and sent back but received no mail from that list. Emails from other list still coming to me. Contacted the Support for the lists and they manually subscribed me to both lists. THEN, I not only didn't get emails from the new list but also didn't get them from the list I had been receiving. So I tried subscribing myself to both lists, then sent an "test" email to one list and a "test 2" email to the other. Both were received by them but I got nothing back from either list. I had changed no settings for my email; there was nothing in the @att.net webmail and nothing in spam, or any other folder in emails anywhere. The ISP (AT&T) said they had not blocked anything from their end and had they done so, I would have received a notice that emails were being blocked. None received. ALL other email and email lists are working perfectly. I did try resetting the firewall, just in case but nothing changed. I am using Outlook 2003 with both the gmail and att.net coming into it. My browser is IE8. Any ideas?

These images are not being downloaded from your email provider. They may be being removed as part of the Servers anti-virus or anti-spam protection, or because of some internal policy. Check with your email provider. The problem is not in Vista.

any chance there is a huge file in the inbox on the server, I have seen this happens before , where someone has sent a load of photographs in one email and that locks out the email with those symptoms
