When I was cleaning up my desktop I decided to delete the recycle bin and move a shortcut to a dock I was using. I deleted the registry key as per instructions I found somewhere on the net (big mistake).
I have replaced the registry key as per instructions but still haven't got my recycle bin back. Any suggestions?

Thanks everyone who read this post.
I have fixed the problem. I deleted the key again and replaced it again then shutdown/restart NOT just restart. Seems to have worked!

Yeah, when ever you make changes to the registry, the first thing you should do, is make a backup, before making changes.
Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:
How to back up, edit, and restore the registry

Then, after making the changes, you need to reboot your computer, not restart it.

Glad you were able to get your problem resolved, wildchild2.

Yeah, I am rapidly learning the benefits of backing up BEFORE making changes! :thumbsup:
