Hey, both me and my husband have just run windows update, and all of a sudden, on both our machines, the recycle bin icon has disappeared. Coincidence? Probably not.

Anyways, does anyone know of a quick way to restore the icon? The text is still there, and I can still place things in there, but there's simply no icon at all, neither empty nor full.....

Thanks!!!!! I solved it through one fo the links in there!!!!!!

Turned out to be as simple as a desktop refresh....(hitting F5)...which is weird, cos a restart didn't help.... but well, it's solved!
