I use Tweakui for XP..... Try and search for 'Powertoys for XP' There you can remove it from the desktop... I ain't never heard of another way....

go into the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\mircosoft\windows\current verison\explorer\desktop\name space

and then look in there for one that says recycle bin and delete the entire key. The changes take effect immeaditly just refresh your desktop

TweakUI is one of the PowerToys made by M$.
What you need to get is TweakUI for Windows XP

You can follow this link:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe

It will basically allow you to customize your OS without venturing into the registry.
Some changes (those that modify anything under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE in the registry) will affect all users, while others (that make changes to HKEY_CURRENT_USER) will only affect your user account.

Good luck! :)
