    Hi, a simple question. My recycle bin on the desktop shows that it is full (paper sticking out of the bin), but when I open it it's empty. When I go to file in order to click the "empty recycle bin", it is grayed out, and I don't have the option to do that. Any ideas of how to make the bin look empty, just bothers the type A person that I am, heehee.

    Get TweakUI and under 'Repair', try 'repair icons.'

    Go into your Display Properties and click the effects tab. Do your Full and Empty Recycle Bin icons look like mine or are they switched around. Select one and then click the Default button.

    Hi, found out that the Tweak UI is not for windows 98. Looks like its for 2000, XP, etc. BUT, did do the Display>effects, etc and that worked. Thanks for both of your comments!
