The icon on my desktop for recycle bin has gone.
Can any one tell me how to regain access to it?

Sorry I Should have been more specific. My os is xp. I think I may have caused the problem when trying a programme called xptuneup which I think had the ability to hide the recycle bin icon on the desktop. The problem is that I got the programme from a magazine coverdisc which said it was freeware. However I now find that after 1 use the programme will not now run from the "try first" button. As I don't have the money to buy right now I need another way to access the recycle bin.

A simple registry tweak will restore it - click here (it is likely that this is what disabed it in the first place).

If you are not confident with the registry, visit Microsoft's site, download and install TeakUI for XP - this will allow you to restore / hide a range of desktop icons, including the recycle bin.
