I doubt this is a security problem, but its a problem I couldn't find the right category for. I just took a look at my desktop and noticed that my Recycle Bin was gone. I used different Search functions and couldn't find it; I can still, however, delete items. I don't know how this happened (it disappeared). I was wondering what could have happened and how to do I get the Recycle Bin back in my view?

Scroll down to #64 and click "Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP" in the right column. Go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save restorerecyclebin.reg to your desktop. Double-click on that file and choose "Yes" to merge it into the registry when prompted. Once you get a successful message delete the file and reboot.

This solution involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. As an alternative, you can download and use ERUNT which is an excellent free tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed. For instructions with screenshots, see Take a complete registry backup using ERUNT.
