Recovering a deleted Recycle Bin in Win XP

By Yur_Majesty ·
One of my clients has managed to delete his RECYCLE BIN. No, not just the icon, but the entire bin. Windows Explorer does not show it even there on the tree.
RegEdit tricks used by TweakUI and other tools do not bring it back. I have even walked through all the items in KB810869, but to no avail. The user did not tell me about it for over 2 months, so there is no restore point to fall back on. Also, he is 400 miles away, so I will need to resolve this remotely (via LogMeIn).
Any thoughts?

Dear Majesty, when you decided to post both a "discussion" and a "technical question", you could have decided to make one of the entries your "main" one, and then in the "supporting post" link to the other one.
Now, you got same answer in both places, but from different people. Good thing this was a rather easy question (although its implementation may be tricky for you, since your client is a remote one). Would have been worse if you make people do a lot of investigations for answers when someone else has already answered your question in the other place.
