Is recycle bin gone or is it changed to another icon? Just cold boot PC if it has been changed.

Ezy2,
 
In Registry Editor, go to the following folder:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\
NameSpace\

You should see this key:

{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

In the right window of regedit, you should see "name" as default and "data" as "Recycle Bin"

Also, check to make sure that the Recycle Bin folder has not been deleted.

To validate the desktop icon, find a reference to Recycle Bin in the Registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\

The key should be:

{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
