Hi querten,

All you need to remove Recycler.exe.
Try any of these tools and show us the logfiles.

1.  Download and run this tool and follow the prompts: 

2.  Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

If you can restart your computer to Command Prompt Mode
You can just Delete the file manually by typing
del /f /s recycler.exe        (First Command)

The first command will delete the recycler.exe file from all your Directories.
The second one will delete the Recycler bin folder from your C:\ drive and it will just be empty from any files.

Try this and hope it works
