Enable/Disable Recycle Bin
For those confident enough that you will never need a deleted file or folder, this tweak will disable the Recycle Bin and permanently delete items with no chance of recovery.

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\BitBucket
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
Data Type: DWORD // Value Name: NukeOnDelete
Setting for Value Data: [0 = Use Recycle Bin / 1 = Permanently Delete]
Exit Registry and Reboot

To avoid the inherent danger of editing the registry, the same results may be obtained by using the procedure detailed below.

Right click the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop and click [Properties]
Check the box for [Do Not Move Files to the Recycle Bin]
Click [Apply] and [OK]

hope i helped ya

but that wont delete the icon from the desktop.

go to start, run, type gpedit.msc, go to admin templates under user config, go to desktop, remove recycle bin from desktop, click enable, close it, refresh and it will be gone.
