If you have received a loan, it is probable you would have been provided PPI (payment protection insurance) with it. This is a type of insurance, which is planned to cover your repayments for one year in the occasion of a misfortune, illness or joblessness.

There are a lot of pc utilities that offer data recovery even when you emptied your recycle bin. I am not sure though what would work the best. I have been tempted to use one but I am not sure if it is all safe to do it. Though, files are not really deleted but just stored in another place which does not consume that much space. Some of the brands recommended here are good.

By far, the easiest way to fix it is to click this link, then click the Microsoft Fix-it guy. In under a minute, your icon will reappear.

What do you expect from India? Vista was created in India by Indian developers. All MS operating systems now and in the future will be created in India. Since their Eastern culture, and logic, is different from ours, their interfaces will also be illogical to the Western World as well. The western logic that was used in XP and below were created by American developers and the differences are like night and day. In retrospect, you might want to say Vista is not up to the tried and trued MS American made standards of the past. This is one of the reasons why Vista has so many backdoors, glitches, and bugs. Quality control is at an all time low for MS and the operating system should never have been released when it was. Vista has taken several steps backwards from XP. For every single click made in XP, several clicks must be performed in Vista to achieve the same results. This is Millennium all over again.

If you do this it doesn't show the Recycle icon as both as full and empty. What I did was to use the Window's restore program to undue the mistake.

Why do you need to attack India and their culture for a discussion about retriving recycle bin? are you a racist? it is so embarassing that you call yourself American. Maybe we need to learn from other cultures in order to make us a better people. I also found many American logic don't make sense! Please open your eyes as wide as possible, don't blame others when you failed on something!

I think that the "Microsoftie" who created the option to delete the the "Recycle Bin" should have his head examined. We don't have that choicce in XP, and we certainly don't need it in Vista.

First, welcome to TR. Second, as a newbie, you probably haven't noticed the 'Report as Spam' link. It's on the same gray bar as 'Discussion - Post x of y', just above the post title and at the right hand end of the bar. If you really feel Warco's post is racist (and frankly, I agree with you), re-open it, click the 'Report as Spam' link, and confirm you really want to do it. If the Powers That Be agree with you, they'll remove the link. That said, we're pretty liberal around here about what you can say in a discussion. About the only thing you can't post are racist / sexist remarks, spam, and blatant obscenity. Off-topic and off-color remarks are not just acceptable but expected and on rare occasions encouraged.

When I try that solutioh, I get the message "Your system administrator has disabled launching of the Display Settings Control Panel." Of course that's crazy, as I am the Administrator. Online I found some registry hacks to resolve this problem. Apparently they work for some people but not for me. I finally figured out a work-around. There is a Recycle folder in each drive within which is a Recycle Bin. So just create a shortcut on the Desktop for each of those bins. The shortcut will look just like the original Recycle Bin but now you need one for each drive. That is no problem, and you are then all set.
