    Hi I have XP and my recycle bin items don't show. I redid the whole registry due to a computer virus. Now the thing still doesn't show! I thought it may have just been a corrupt file. I noticed a link someone suggested to someone else.....

    But it didn't work for me.
    The recycle bin hid items also upon removing Norton, so that's not the problem. I did remove manually the user info so I didn't have to log in with a password everytime I start my computer but don't think that's it. It seems like Windows has a lot of problems for people who want to see recycle bin items.

    try going to the recycle bin's folder on the hard drive. it is located in the folling folder for the C:\ drive:
    c:\recycler
    (You can replace "C" with any drive letter, they all have them.)

    I tried that and it says the drive is inaccessible.

    I think I spelled it wrong (I was at school, and I hevn't done this for a long time). Try unhiding the protected system files and looking for the folder (like in the image)
