Rename your recycle bin.

Backup your registry, if you want to do this, because you’re going to change some of your registry value. So if something wrong happened you can undo this by restore your registry. If you don’t know how to backup your registry, then try to search my blog with blog search engine (look at the top, you can’t miss it). Follow these steps to make your Windows XP’s recycle bin looks different:
  1. Click Start > Run and then type “regedit”. This will open Registry Editor window.
  2. Find this path (from the left side Registry Editor window): HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08 -00AA002F954E}
  3. Double click on (Default), on the right side Registry Editor window. This will open Edit String window, and then type in your new name for your recycle bin in the Value data, then click Ok button.
  4. Double click on LocalizedString, on the right side Registry Editor window.This will open Edit String window, and then type in your new name for your recycle bin in the Value data (make sure you type same name that you typed in No.3), then click Ok button, close your Registry Editor window.
  5. Point your mouse pointer in empty area of your Desktop, right click and choose Refresh, you should see your new recycle bin now.

Enjoy your new recycle bin ....

Wow this is so stupid. Why not just right click it then type your new name then refresh? It worked for me. No need to go all the way around the world...
