    how to restore recycle bin (XP Pro SP2)

    Thinking I was eradicating the Norton bin, I have actually deleted the Windows bin.
    It isn't one of the options offered in Add or Remove Windows Components, so how should I recover it from the CD-ROM?
    All help gratefully received!

    Re: how to restore recycle bin (XP Pro SP2)

    - Go to Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP.
    - Locate line #64, and click the link on the right-hand side Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP.
    - You can either open the .reg file directly, or download it to your hard disk then open it.

    Alternatively:
    - Right-click an empty area of your desktop
    - Select Properties from the popup menu
    - Activate the Desktop tab
    - Click the Customize button
    - Click Restore Default
    - Restart your computer
