    Reload your Norton Utilities or System works.
    NProtect is the Recycle bin for Windows Recycle bin that Norton creates to
    hold files that are emptied from the Windows Recycle bin.
    It is normally hidden from view on all but the most recent versions of
    Norton by using Rootkit techniques.

    If you are hoping to recover files from this folder be aware deleting it
    will have released the space to the 'free' space and may have been
    overwritten by other newer files.

    Cheers
    Paul.

    That wasn't a mistake. Anything Symantec/Norton *should* be hung out to
    'dry'.

    ARGGGGHHHHHHHHH!

    "Friends don't let friends drive Norton"

    Fuckin' invasive, bloated, damn near useless, almost impossible to rid
    yourself of once installed, piece of shit that it's become.

    IN the future, please do NOT use the Nortons Protected Recycle Bin.
