Missing trash icon - ONLY ICON - not trash bin

Q: Missing trash icon - ONLY ICON - not trash bin

I know that a lot of people accidentally delete their recycle bin - but in this case I noticed that the icon was missing - and only the icon - the words "recycle bin" are there, and I can open the folder and use the operations, but the picture icon of a trash can is missing. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Missing trash icon - ONLY ICON - not trash bin

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys,
I've faced a problem with a customization willing of mine which doesn't seem to be possible, so, (although it might have been answered through past requests of the others, and that makes me apologize that I wasn't successful finding it) I want to ask it here, wishing to have anyone answer it.
I've provided myself a "Shared Documents" folder on the shared user's desktop to make it easier to share things with my brother, and to prevent myself from checking it on time, I am willing to find a way which helps me with it: To declare a icon for the empty folder state and also once it is not empty with a different icon; just as trash is.

thanks for your response in pre (or something, not familiar enough with language)

A:Dynamic icon like the trash's

If you are using the large icon view, your active folders should be displaying that trait anyway.
Any other view..... I'll have a look but I don't think it is possible.

Hi. As you may know Vista has this terrible problem with native basic icons. It is possible to delete them. This is what happened to me. I attempted to empty my trash can, but instead I clicked on delete, and the icon of trash can was deleted. Can anybody tell me how to restore the original trash can on my desktop screen?

Greetings. I've been having this problem for several months and just can't get rid of it. When I plug in any storage device (USB stick, iPod nano, SD cards etc.) and open it all I see are shortcuts. And .Trashes folder always appears. I can open folders and then access files in these folders, but if a file is in the root of USB it will be categorized is unknown file and I won't be able to open it. I use cmd command (attrib -s -r -h X:*.* /s /d) so that my computer shows me files, but I have to do it every time. And it just duplicates files and folders. I also don't have Trash icon on my desktop. I use Avast Antivirus and update it regularly. When I scan USB drives it finds threats: Trashes and few more. It says it is a dropper and trojan virus. Deleting doesn't help because it is all the same next time I plug in USB drive. I tried formatting drives but it is still the same.

I haven't accessed the above for a while and now see that I have TWO symbols there.... I made some deletions in the trash section but it still has the 'full' symbol, i.e. temp trash (full) and also another one saying empty, i.e. temp trash (empty). What's going on? I can see there would need to be 2 bins if
one was full but now I have deleted a lot of stuff so it is only about 25% filled....why does it still say full?
Is there a delay with assimilating the deleted change and showing this?

The shortcut icons for my desktop icons are all missing and have been for about a year. I foolishly must have installed something at some point that removed the shortcut icons. I just started searching for results only to find a solution on this forum.

The problem is that the information that I need is in closed threads that no longer have the attachments that I would need to solve this issue.

The following link was the article that I found that had the correct info that I needed.

Open up Windows Explorer, click on the Tools menu and select Folder Options

In the window that opens, uncheck the top box that says "Always show icons, never thumbnails" and then click on Apply

Check your folders to see if this change has taken affect.

BTW - if you can't see the menu items, press the Alt key and the File...Edit...View...Tools...Help menu items should appear. To keep this behavior permanent, put a check in the 2nd box where it states "Always show menus"

Hello,

I have a Dell 1525 Inspiron. Last year, my hard drive started failing. I limped along, until finally buying a new hard drive nine months ago. It seems that this one is failing as well. I am wondering if my computer has something else wrong that would make it go through hard drives, or if I am just unlucky! When I run the Dell & Seagate diagnostics it was showing a SMART error, but when I ran both sets of tests this past weekend, both tests passed fine.

Here's the error codes I am getting:

Can I retrieve deleted files after the Trash has been taken out? With the right random key strokes, my 2 year old has deleted Call of duty 4 from our computer.

It was in the Program Files folder of course in a folder called Activision. I know, becasue I was tweaking in it, the I minimized it and showered. I came out it is gone, and the trash can is empty. I assume he did that, maybe this is the first signs that he will be a computer genius or something.

So can i get it back? We can re-install the game, but we don't want to start all over (in the game I mean) if we don't have to.

A:After the trash?

To retrieve it without any file corruption is a gamble. Once the recycle bin is empty, Windows might have already started overwritting the files

Some of you are going to think I'm an idiot. I've had a computer absolutely thrashed by a download happy niece. It's had such a high level of spyware and junk programs that it was left nearly useless.

After consistently using a "Process killer" program to kill processes and delete their ".exe" files, I was making much of headway, then came the vicious and last big hurdle. There was an .exe file that would run about 5 at once, and I don't recall the name. If I would kill it, it would then start another one. I couldn't delete it's .exe in the Windows\System32 folder because it was "in use." It's parent however was "SYSTEM.EXE" and so I did a search for it, killed it's process and then got it to the trash bin, all the while I had a 60 second countdown imposed upon my when the computer would reboot.

Upon reboot, everything looks normal until I should see a login screen, but all visible is the cursor and nothing else. If I start up in safe mode, I essentially get the same thing, and If I attempt to boot from a CD, same thing, same screen.

Do I have any recourse to get that System.exe out of the recycle bin? Is it possible with DOS command prompt perhaps?

Thanks a ton for any help from you guys here. I've had excellent help here over the years, beginning 4 or more years back when I got a vicous virus on my computer, perhaps thanks to the Department of Homeland security who now admittedly can &q... Read more

Hello, what is the new PC's operating system? Win7?? 32 0r 64 bit. Also what Antivirus is installed?Some types of malware will disable MBAM (MalwareBytes) and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first***Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

On my old computer, I had found a set of folders which would store almost all my video previews as actual incomplete video files. Needless to say, it wasn't just from P2P. There were a lot of files there, and the name of the folder was content.IE5. Although there were some naughty things in that folder I wouldn't want anyone seeing, it freed up a considerable amount of space getting rid of that stuff.
I found content.IE5 on my new computer, but every one of the subfolders seems to be empty. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong times or something, but I know I happened upon a folder similar to the original trash folder I'm talking about. It may have been content, but I'm not sure. With the stuff I've been deleting off of the computer this last week, there's little reason for the total number of GB left on the computer to be so low. I'm trying to find those folders before it really comes back to bite me.
Now for reference, my old computer had windows 98 and my new one has Windows XP with Service Pack 2.

Hi Folks,

After a few days of slow responses on the pc, and suspicious things like ATF Cleaner saying there were no temp files to delete when I figured there should be, I decided to run some scans.

Both MBAM and Avira notified me of a trojan on my pc. Both said they had quarantined it but afterwards I was having trouble loading web pages, e.g. Google. I restarted the pc and the web pages loaded okay but I'm still a little concerned.

It all started a few days ago when we got a phone call from somebody saying they were from Microsoft and had noticed we had a virus on our computer. Naturally we thought it was a scam and refused to talk to him. Then, a day later, I was using my Hotmail account to send an e-mail and received a router message saying it couldn't deliver the message. But the e-mail address it said it couldn't send to was unknown to me. However, I tried again and it worked okay.

I ran the MBAM quick scan after this, and an Avira scan, but nothing showed up. Then, of course, the pc started running quite slowly so today I decided to run a full MBAM scan and it said it quarantined a trojan in a app called SPFLite.exe. This is an app I downloaded some time ago and thought was safe. In fact I'm pretty sure it is but I deleted it anyway.

During this scan, and after it highlighted the trojan, I then got a warning from Avira about a TR/Trash.Gen trojan, which was then quarantined. After this, as stated earlier, I couldn't load any web pages but after restarting... Read more

It's been a while since I've been here..that's a tribute to all of you that have helped me out in the past!

I have this computer.....
650Mhz Celeron processor
192 RAM
16 Gig HD
WinXP Pro (Sp1)

.....that I need to "clean". I ran Spybot and Adaware and eliminated over 600 spyware files, and uninstalled every program that I could find (and that I know about) that had been added since XP was installed. I don't have the original XP disk to work with with, I've just been asked to "bring it back to fresh install status".
My question is is there a utility that can help me do this, and/or looking for suggestions and direction that can help me with this process? I'm really not very familiar with XP as, personally, I'm still in the Win98se stage of my own computer.
Any suggestions I can pass along as to any upgrades to the computer also would be welcomed.

As usual...THANKS!

This is weird. Every time I click on the trash bin icon and it opens up I get the Explorer is not working Error! Then it closes. Other times it hangs when I put the cursor on a file in the trash bin to return it to it's original folder. I have a file that I must retrieve from the trash bin. So please do not recommend reformatting. It is out of the question. The file has to be removed first.
I can't even touch any file without it hanging and restarting explorer. The only thing that seems to work is right clicking on the trash bin icon on the desktop and choosing empty bin. Otherwise it won't let me touch any files. Has anyone has this problem? Please. I need your help.

I believe i'm infected with trash.get, but ony after having been infected by PRAGMA.sys virus (which I learned how to remove and found out about this site from by doing a google search). Avira is popping up a detection dialog box every few seconds saying that trojan horse TR/Trash.Gen was found, under the name zmgyfb.dll. Additionally, WinPatrol's Scotty is saying that a DLL is trying to run as an app. it says: "a change was made to use the following program for this file type:Run a DLL as an APPMicrosoft Corporationrundll32.exe ieframe.dll,OpenURL %|Is this change OK?"I always say NOI can't manually delete this .dll file.
