$recycle.bin on f:\

Specs: Windows Vista
All of a sudden I am getting "recycle bin on F:\ is corrupted" I did not know I had a F:\. I tried to look at properties and it says "F:\$RECYCLE.BIN Unable to display current owner". Is it me?

Have a look in Computer Management to see if there is an 'F'
drive for a start. Each drive has its own recycle bin, but I'm
guessing that you may have had an external device plugged in
that was not removed properly, you may even have a card reader,
on a printer(?) which has caused the error.

A $ in front of it tells me it is not a true MS file. This is not a proper file.
I suspect virus.

I went into computer management and it says I have a remote administrator and Ipec???? I ordered new recover disks, wiped my hard drive, reinstalled my Vista Home Premium, (with all internet connections manually disconnected), downloaded all my HP drivers from my neighbors computer, installed them, and updated over 100 Windows updates. Nothing has changed. My CPU is jumping from 0-100 every few seconds, I have over 10 service.exe and numerous other network services running constantly in task manager, even when I turn off these services manually. Some of these services are greyed out and I do not have access to them. I have manually tried deleting system settings and files I am "denied access". I tried to change permissions and the settings on ALL of these files are grayed out. I even bought EASEUS Partition and deleted the D:\ HP Recovery drive (which was immediately full when I reinstalled everything), "destroyed all existing data" and created another partition. The $recyclebin and desktop.ini keep coming back within a few minutes. I do not have any financial information or loss but this has been time consuming and very frustrating. Is this normal and if not is there a way to find out who the remote administrator is how do I get them off my computer?
