    You can do this with the program E-icons. You canf find it here. But its not freeware, its a 30 trial.

    Simply ad this to the register to rename the Recycle Bin.

    For win2K-xp btw.
    Begin mark:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=hex:50,01,00,20
    "CallForAttributes"=dword:00000000

    End Mark:

    mark and save as rename bin.reg, double-klick to ad to registry.:)

    I think there is an easier way to change the name from the registry. I've done it but can't find the instructions. Someone here should have it.
    As for the icon right click desktop\properties\desktop\customise desktop.

    Microangelo is also a good program that enables you to edit every icon on you computer....it costs money but has a trial time period.

    If you d/l this program you should be able to right click your recycle bin and rename it from there.

    I would just recommend changing the icon by doing what Hipster Doofus said and changing the name by doing what LoveByte. Its one less program.

    Besides tinkering with the registry is fun.

    I did do a search before I posted, but I did not get the 'posts' that you did, I only got results for changing the icon, which is why I posted again.
