    OK... some history...... I did a reg. hack that lets you re-name the recycle bin from the decktop just by right clicking on it.

    ( [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=hex:70,01,00,20
    "CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000 )

    Thats the hack...... Well There is also a option to delete. Well drunk ass me clicked on the delete and not the empty option.

    How do I get it back.... I already have XP to show system files and I can see the recyler folder with the icons in it. I could always make a shortcut, but it not the same ... When you goto change the Icon in the Display Properties.. Well it doesnt change.

    Any help out there ????

    :cool:

    Open up your registry and make your way here:-
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder

    In the right-hand side double-click "Attributes" and change the numbers to:-
    50 01 00 20

    Thanks to Dirk Diggler.

    I did a restart and had pressed F8 and click on the one that says Last Know Boot that worked..... something like that....

    Still gone......

    :mad:

    I do have Drive Image Pro. It worked great on 98 (FAT32). I could re-install windows in about 10 min...

    Now that I have XP (NTFS) it doesnt work with this file format !!!:mad:


    Just my luck !!!!!!!!!!

    thats NOT a system restore I don;t think... go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and go back to a prior date and get it back... its simple really... unless you were really clever and turned off system restore to save disk space or something :D

    if that happened... do the following... FRESH INSTALL lol... I dunno any other way to get it back if you can restore the bin from the registry per xsiv...

    just do try out the system restore and it should work...
