Missing recycle bin in my Windows XP Explorer Folder?

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
