When I searched for 645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E
I found about 8 entries.
I changed different ones that had "Recycle Bin" as the data, but none of them changed the icon name on the desktop.
One entry did change the name of the "explore" window title bar though.

Just use the first one you come to, and ignore the rest:
Note the key root: My Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID
You WILL need to restart your machine for it to take effect, since the key is read at boot time - the icon object has no way of being notified that it's key in the Registry has changed. It's kind of like needing to refresh a Free Republic web page to see new comments. I just tested it on XP (already did it on Win2K) and, unlike Win2k, there's somewhere else from where the name is being set. Try searching for "Recycle Bin" instead of that long GUID. I found a key that started with "@C:\" with that name, under MUICache, changed the value from "Recycle Bin" to "Trash" and am rebooting now.
