English X. Have a question? The TuneUp undelete however is still on the recycle bin context menu. Is there anyway to get that back? Click on Intergration. In the right side panel check the checkbox ‘Show Shredder in the context menu of files and folders’. Click Ok to save changes.

Mark Raven Thanks for your quick response. I may have not been clear. I already see the shredder in the context menu for files and folders. Until this update it also used to be an option when I right clicked on the recycle bin. Normally after I have some files accumulated in the recycle bin I just right click on it and use the AVG file shredder to empty the recycle bin. Now that functionality is missing. I have tried the fixes suggested but that did nothing for the recycle bin.

It is recommended to manually delete the contents of the recycle bin manually. Thank you for your understanding. Mark Raven Well, okay. I don’t know why it was there the day before yesterday. Kishore Avast Hello Mark, Please be informed that the files you delete using the AVG shredder will be removed from your PC directly and will not be moved on to the recycle bin.

So it is not required to create a temporary folder to store the data’s to be deleted. Thank you. After the restart the AVG Shredder was back on the right context menu of the recycle bin. Problem solved. As I said the AVG shredder came back for the recycle bin after the last AVG update that requested a restart, so the problem is resolved. Balasubramanian S AVG Mark, we are glad to hear that you got back the option after performing the update and confirming that you are using the version but we request you to take the screenshot of the AVG program version window and the right click option on Recycle bin that has the “File Shredder” option and provide it to us.

Just in case that you are unaware, you can post the screenshot here in your topic. Mark Raven. Mark Raven I have submitted requested information. Before you ask for more see a screenshot of the AVG products I have installed. Could you please confirm whether you have followed the instructions provided by Kishore in his first post to enable the option to “Show Shredder” of AVG PC TuneUp on the context menu of files and folders?

Mark Raven I followed those instructions, which were useless and had no effect. Here is a screenshot of the PC Tune Up screen. None of the options has changed before or after the last update to AVG. It could be a glitch that it disappeared from the context menu of Recycle bin.

Hope you will not have any further issues with it. Appreciate your understanding, thank you. You need to sign in to do that. Need an account? Sign Up. Have an account? Sign In Facebook. Need help?
