    The Recycle Bin window got somewhat corrupted while using another application that went crazy while the recycle window was open - Firefox started producing multiple windows on screen. I reinstalled Firefox (its own window also got corrupted; now fixed with reinstall), however that did not fix the corrupted Recycle Bin window.

    I then completely removed the account, and deleted the user directory, for the user name where the corruption happened. Now, when I create ANY new user account, the Recycle Bin window comes back corrupted. Older user accounts are not affected.

    Is there an easy fix?

    Using Win2k with latest updates.

    If you want to see what the corrupted Recycle Bin window looks like, I have uploaded a screen capture of the window.

    See if this will help:

    Go here: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

    Scroll to line 64. On the right, right click on "Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP", select "Save target as". Download to your desktop where you can easily find it. Right click on the .reg file and select "Merge". When asked if you want to add this to the registry, confirm.
