Hi. As you may know Vista has this terrible problem with native basic icons. It is possible to delete them. This is what happened to me. I attempted to empty my trash can, but instead I clicked on delete, and the icon of trash can was deleted. Can anybody tell me how to restore the original trash can on my desktop screen? :smash:

Thanks a lot. It worked. The only problem now is that the animation between empty anf full trash can is disappeared.

It's a bug in Vista. See this for the fix.
