Recycle Bin missing

By sfisher ·
I have a remote user (on Win2000) who claims that her Recycle Bin is missing. Is it possible to delete the icon from the desktop? How do you get it back?

In the registry navigate to following location under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace and make sure the following key is there
{e17d4fc0-5564-11d1-83f2-00a0c90dc849}
If it is not you'll need to create it to restore the Recycle Bin
If it is there when you look then I don't know what else to tell you
