Can somebody tell me how to get back my recycle bin in my Windows XP Explorer Folder?

It can still be found on Desktop but somehow I have a lot of problem opening it lately and
I have to click on it a few times to open it.

It's possible I accidentally remove the recycle bin from Explorer.

Notwithstanding it can actually be found hidden inside one of the folders with another recycle bin for the default profile as I am login in the Windows XP as a separate profile.

I just want my recycle bin with it's icon proper back in the explorer folder overview.
It's not suppose to be hidden.
fyi it's a personal standalone desktop PC.

It's not supposed to be hidden, I think you have some spyware/adware on your computer.

The path to the recycle bin is: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Desktop
try using xcleaner from http://www.xblock.com
