    I recently performed a fresh install of XP Pro with service pack 2, and all has gone well with the exception of a couple of programs that I knew in advance would not work with SP2.

    There is one other minor problem, however, that I can live with, but would like to resolve if possible.

    The recycle Bin icon on the desktop does not automatically refresh and change from "empty" to "full" (or vice-versa) when putting files in it or when emptying it. It does change when I manually refresh the screen by keying F5.

    Has anyone seen this problem before and/or have any suggestions as to if anything can be done to correct it?

    Thanks in advance!

    (Oh, yes, there have been no third party mods made to the recycle bin. No Norton, etc.)
