JSI Tip 9425. Your Windows XP Recycle Bin looses functionality?

One possible reason that the Recycle Bin has lost functionality, or behaves strangely, is that the Recycle Bin registry entries have become corrupt or deleted. To resolve this problem, run RecycleBinReg.bat, shutdown and restart your computer.

RecycleBinReg.bat contains:

@echo on
