Question Recycle bin won't open

Hi,

When I double click my RB, the "open with which program" window opens up. If I right click and hit open or explore, it opens fine. Other than the double clicking not working, everything else works fine, like deleting, appearance, etc. I deleted Norton Systemworks and noticed that my RB still had the Norton Protected RB name. I then renamed the file C:\Recycler to C:\Recycler X. It created a new file called C:\Recycler and I deleted the old one, C:\Recycler X. This put a properly named RB on my desktop but I can't double click to open it. Any solutions?

Thumbs up Problem solved

This is how I fixed the problem. Had to delete this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Clsid\{645FF04 0-5081-101b-9F08-0AA002F954E}\Shell\Norton unerase

I had a feeling that Norton was still hanging around my computer. Anyhow, problem solve. Thread resolved.
