Right click the Recycle Bin and choose Properties. Is the " Display
delete confirmation dialog " box checked ?
Did you scan the system for malware prior to installing SP2 ?
Some malwares can corrupt the Recycle Bin. To repair it, run this
registry file, Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP, located at
#64 here :
Download and save it. Then merge it into the registry by double clicking
it or right click it and choose Merge.
