Specs: Windows XP
2 issues.
1 - double clicking on recycle icon just creates a short cut to the recycle bin
2. right click on recycle bin icon, there is no Explore or open option.
XP SP3 has been installed since SP3 was released, no virus/malware and no new software has been installed.

Any ideas ?

Bob, Go to the link below and scroll down to line 64 (right column) and click on "Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

Bob, Try this:

Start>Run then copy & paste:

regsvr32 /i shell32

Click OK

It's worth a try.
