    Reinstalling Windows ought to have restored your recycle bin.

    Pease do this:

    Download the attached Recycled.txt, and save as (rename to) Recycled.reg (save as 'all files')
    Doubleclick Recycled.reg.
    Answer 'yes' to the prompt to merge the data into the registry. Subsequently, reboot.
