i can only imagine that you are running windows of some sort, my suggestion would be to reinstall over the top of your existing windows just go- start, run, browse ( you are looking for the drive in which you are installing from then look for the setup file, once selected just follow the on screen instructions and your problem should be solved), I dont know how or if you can restore( undelete ) your recycle bin

Are you sure you deleted the recycle bin and not just the icon for it? A good way is to go to start then to find and then type in recycle bin, your computer will detect it if it is still in there. If you know for sure you have deleted the whole program, and you are running say...Windows 98, you can extract it by going to start and then run. Type in sfc and have your windows 98 cd handy, because it will ask for it. Hope this helps! :)

Chances are that you have only removed it from your Desktop. You can create a new shortcut - the folder is C:\Recycled. To see it, you need to make sure that you can see System files. If you can see the folder, Right-click on it and choose Create Shortcut. Drag that to your Desktop and you're back in bidness!


Here is how to show System files:
1. Open Windows Explorer (Start, Programs, Windows Explorer).
2. Click on View, Options. (or Tools, Folder Options)
3. Make sure you are on the View tab.
4. Make sure that you can Show All Files.

Good Luck!

By any chance do you have MS Powertoys installed?
If you do then go into Control Panel then TWEAK UI.
Add a check beside recycvle bin in the desktop tab and this should resolve the issue.
