Thanks guys. agree with you sobeit about the registry tweak, have been told before not to mess with it, as i am a pc amateur and not to sure on what damage i might do. I only wanted a clear desk top to put some of my great holiday photos on.Thanks anyway

You don't want to mess with Registry Editor? There is an alternative.

Go to - click here - and download the zip file.Extract it to a folder of your choice and in it you will find four registry files.

Choose the one you want - "Remove recycle bin icon" - right click it and choose "Merge".Next time you boot the icon will be gone.

There is a similar file for restoring the icon.The same method above applies.
