i dont know if this will help but i thought i should put it here:
- goto desktop, and right click, and chose properties from the menu
- click on the effects tab.
- the first field will be about desktop icons
- change the icons as u like.
hope this helps.
Check my post on .bat and .reg files it should contain the CLISD code for the recycle bin - just go in using regedit and check that both string values are set correctly for empty and full...
hope that helps :)
On my XP pro sys is doing the same thing...the trash icon is full but the trash 'has been taken out'. Me personally I could care less...if I'm not wasting mg's or kb's my trash icon can hola dance for all I care. However I think I am going to try some of the advice given to see if the icon problem gets rectified. I'll drop back with whatever works.
