If for some strange reason you have permanently deleted the Recycle Bin from your computer, I would suggest you to re-install your operating system So wipe clean those dusty re-installation cd(s) that came along with your computer when you first purchased it and pop them into your cd-rom Follow the instructions on the monitor to complete the re-installation and all should be well What a re-installation does is bring back your computer to its' original state In other words, you will lose all saved data and any programs or applications you have installed So I would also suggest you to back up any important files or folders Good Luck!!
