    To rename the Recycle Bin open up the Registry and drill down to:-
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software / Microsoft / Windows / ShellNoRoam / MUICache and double-click the Name that corresponds to Recycle Bin. Then change the ValueData to whatever you like, and click OK.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
    change the Default (it's probably blank), to whatever you want ie. Crap Trap. These are two possible addresses to change the name of the Recycle Bin.
    OR TRY THIS
    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

    Sorry Famine,
    I missed a little bit of info from the last part. If you drill down to here:-
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ShellFolder

    and change the Attributes to:-
    50,01,00,20

    This will allow you to change the name of the Recycle Bin from the Desktop. Just right-click the Bin and you will have a "Rename" option.

    I just re-tried the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT tweak and it worked.
    Did you change both the "Attributes" and the "Call for Attributes"
