    I agree. TweakUI is the easiest way.

    Want some crap from the registry? :p

    Hide Recycle Bin

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} REG_DWORD 0x00000001

    or

    Go to: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{647BD8C2-658B-4ECA-ABC7-FC5C0BF1704D}

    Right click on the {647BD8C2-658B-4ECA-ABC7-FC5C0BF1704D} sub key and select Export (this way you can restore it if you want to). Next right click on the same key and select Delete. Go back to your desktop, right click and select Refresh. No more Recycle Bin

    Err. I prefer TweakUI, but I gotta say, editing the registry makes me feel 1337 :blink:
