It's not deleted, just hidden...

To restore it you can go Start->Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Personalization and then click "change desktop icons" from the left-hand column. From there just check Recycle Bin and click OK.

Hope this helps,

Thanks alot, (there is a GOD in heaven), this is a New computer and I couldn't figure out how to do it with vista, windows is very simple but vista hides everything, kind of cool in a way, and not in other ways.

Thanks again for your help.
