    In XP, if you right-click on the recycle bin and choose Properties, there is an option on the Global tab to check if you want to bypass the recycle bin. Don't know if it's available the same way in ME or not, but it's worth a try.

    Worked on my kid's Win 98 system, so I'm sure it'll work for you.

    But if you just want a one-time method, SHIFT-DELETE, either keyboard or on the right-click context menu, bypasses the Recycle Bin for the current delete only.

    It is correct that on my WinME machine you can disable the Recycle Bin in Properties. You can also turn off the confirmation dialog if you want.
