    Can remove the recycle bin name by right clicking on the bin, goign to properites and removing the title

    to change my computer name modify default at this reg key (requires reboot)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

    the recycle bin poperties should have a box called title (in a box called apperance) with the text of the recyle bin.

    other wise this reg key will change it
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    (Default) String (new icon title)

    This tweak changes the names of sytems icons that you have showing on your desktop.
    Click Start --> Run and enter REGEDIT.
    Navigate to the following Registry branch:

    The Desktop Icons are located in the sub keys as follows:
    My Network Places: {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
    My Computer: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
    My Documents: {450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
    Recycle Bin:{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    Default IE Icon: {871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}
    Double click the Default value in the above keys and enter the text you want to use.
    Then Right click on the Desktop and select Refresh to see the changes.
