Welcome to PressF1 :)

What operating system do you have? Does your recycle bin have Norton's Protected on it? How long is long, when the recycle bin empties.

To make a new folder, either right click in the directory where you want the folder to be and select New > Folder, or go to File > New > Folder in the top Windows Explorer bar. Then just type in the name you wish to call it.

an operating system is windows either it be 95,98,98SE,2000 or XP.
i dont think you can buy windows 98 in the shop, you might get it from trademe or other 2nd hand pc store
