I found $RECYCLE.BIN ghost typed into the command prompt which was left open on the system

I don’t remember typing anything close to this and this appeared on my CMD window when I started working on my Laptop again after being away for a while

It wasn’t executed, just typed into the cmd on the drive(F:) I was working on

I suspect that someone has hacked into my system and mistakenly typed it?
Help and suggestions on how to deal with this appreciated!



Tab completion? That path will probably be first in alpha order on non-system drives.


If someone hacked into your system, they most likely have backdoor access and won’t be interacting with your machine using the same user interface that you do.

Like the previous posted said, you most likely hit tab by mistake.
