I boot up my rig one day and to my utmost horror I found that the recylce bin icon was missing from my windows explorer window. I have Windows 2000 with sp3. I first went to the folders option and deselected the option of viewing system protected filez. Sure enough the bin was there and I was able to delete filez from there. However, I want it the way it was the way it was before with the icon in the windows explorer window without deselcting the above mentioned option. I had not used any 3p tweaking sw, so can anybody also tell me what it is that I did to suffer such a fate.
