    When I request to delete a file in windows explorer or IE or Word or anywhere
    it deletes it without asking "are you sure".

    It has asked if I am sure for years until I reinstalling operating system.
    Now this function does not work.

    How do I activate this function?

    Using Windows XP.

    As always thank YOU.

    Check the Recycle Bin properties (right click the Recycle Bin, select
    Properties from the context menu).

    Make sure there is a check in the box for: Display delete confirmation
    dialog.
