It is part of the two step procedure to delete items. Do you empty the contents of the trash bin? :?:

No you can't there is a powertoy on microsoft for download though which enables you to not display the Recycle bin here's the link-

it's the Tweak UI program i use it all the time it's great clean and simple i also use the alt-tab replacement program which is also very efficient

If using XP Pro

Go to START > RUN

Type GPEDIT.MSC

Navagate to USER CONFIGURATION >ADMINISTRATIVE TEMPLATES >Click on DESKTOP,

On the right hand pane find " Remove Recycle Bin icon on the desktop " , double left click on it to ENABLE it.

Sorted!

If using XP Home

Either use TweakUI or make the change manually in the registry.

Create or modify the following registry entry

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel

{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

REG_DWORD

0x00000001
