"I always do this .. I have found
this as a very secure way than editing
registry keys ..

Click Start, Click Run, Type GPEDIT.MSC, Press Enter

select User config (click on ""+"") select Administrative Templates, click on Desktop

In the window @ right side .. Find Remove Recycle Bin Icon from Desktop

Double click on it, you can see a new window now ..

Select Enable option, Press OK.

Go to your desktop .. refresh it .. Recycle bin disappears ..

very important:
to retain your Recycle bin .. select Not configured instead of Enable in above steps .. hope it helped .."
