Ok, first I need confirmation, when view under Explorer View, the recycle bin icon show up as a hidden folder instead of the standard recycle bin in all drives, this is with Win98 retail.
I had run repair icons in TweakUI but still the same, I can't really remember if this is the way it should in Win98.
Please don't post any answer, as the points will go to the correct comment I find acceptable.

I run the retail Win98 and the recycle bin shows up in explorer with the System and Hidden attributes as "Recycled".  I also run TweakUI and after running repair icons, I got those results.

Thanks for the quick response.  But let me rephase my question...

When view under explorer, does the Recycle bin icon show up as hidden folder icon or standard recycle bin icon?

Thanks

It is very normal that the recycle bin is hidden. This was the way in Win95 and it is the way in Win98.
Where is the problem ?

Ok, Ok, sorry for the confusion...

Does the recycle bin ICON show up as:
1) A *Yellow* Folder ICON which is also hidden or
2) The standard recycle bin ICON

I run Win98 retail as well and my Recycle bin appears as a recycle bin, not as a yellow folder. I don't recall anyone running TweakUI, but I'm not sure about that.

Regards,
Ties

I saw both, the yellow folder icon and the recycle bin icon. Don´t know when what appears, but there is no change for the functionality.

i can confirm--

I run the retail Win98 and the recycle bin shows up in explorer as a trash bin icon with the System and Hidden attributes as "Recycled".  I also run
       TweakUI and after running repair icons, I got those results.

Steve, do you happen to know which key in the registry controls the icon of recycled under explorer view?  I have NU3 and the desktop recycle icon is changed by NU, normally it should work with explorer view as well, but I fooled around with some themes that comes with Plus! and now the icon is mess up.
