1. On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Properties.
2. check the Display delete confirmation dialog check box.

The files that you send to recycle are on a network drive or on a local disk?

I'd say that's normal for XP, just as deleting a file from a
network drive doesn't go to the Recycle Bin.
