I think what I have learned from this is that it is not possible to recover deleted items from the recycle bin on the desktop in Windows XP. The only recycle bin which I am able to get on the desktop is the Norton recycle bin linked to my virus protection provider. Am I right to accept that this is the case?

Tech Support Specialist: Joseph, Computer Software Engineer replied 8 years ago
You have an option to restore any file in your recyle bin.

Just right click the File inside your Recyclebin and select Restore.

The deleted file will be restored to the place from where you deleted it.

The trouble is, the only recycle bin on my desktop is the Norton one which doesn't contain any of my work files. I have not managed to reinstate the recycle bin containing my deleted Windows files.
Tech Support Specialist: Joseph, Computer Software Engineer replied 8 years ago
On the Windows desktop, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.
2
On the Global tab, click Use One Setting for All Drives.
3
On the Recycle Bin tab, click Standard Recycle Bin.
4
In the Title field, type the following text:

Recycle Bin
5
On the Norton Protection tab, select a drive, and then uncheck Enable Protection.

Repeat this step for each drive.
6
Select Also Empty Protected Files.
7
Click OK, and then click OK again.
8
Restart the computer.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
