I had to reinstall my Windows 2000 Professional operating system on my PC
after a virus attack. I have 2 problems I haven't been able to resolve.
A. My audio no longer works although it worked fine prior to reinstalling
Windows.
B. Any file I dump into the Recycle Bin does not appear in it. It is NOT
set up to automatically delete the file. This was occurring before I
reinstalled Windows.
I am not an IT kind of person but would welcome any help.

Regarding the first problem:
When you reinstall windows, you lose all the data on the computer in the
drive
containing windows installation, you also lose the device drivers for the
sound,
VGA card, modem ...etc so you have to reinstall the device drivers for
sound card
so look if you have a CD for the sound card, if you don't have it you
must look for
it on the internet, or ask someone who can help you in that, becauce you
have
to find the model and the manufecture of the card to find the suitable
driver.

Regarding the second problem:
you can configure the properties of the Recycle bin properties, by
clicking the
properties of the Icon on the desktop and then
1- check the box of ( Display delete confirmation dialog )
2- Check the box ( Do not move files to the Recycle Bin...)

Hope you got it. Thanks
