    When I delete an item, it does not say (do you want to put it in the recycle bin) it says ( are you sure you want to delete this item. ) and if I change my mind and want it back it is not in the recycle bin. nothing goes in there. where does it go?.. I never have to empty it. I don't like that. can some one help me fix the problem. I am not sure even when it started doing that.

    Right click the 'Recycle Bin' on your Desktop. Click Properties. Is 'Do not move files to the recycle bin', checked? Is 'Display delete confirmation dialog', unchecked?

    Go to Kelly's Corner and search for Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP, it's on line 64 on the right hand side. Download and run that script and reboot.
