Not on the Recycle Bin icon, you can't (at least under Win2K). I have that Norton stuff turned off because of the memory it consumes running in the background doing nothing 99.9% of the time, but you may be right if you actually have that enhanced recycle bin enabled.

True, you can change that one, the title, directly from the desktop. I reckon there's a way to change the icon (of the regular recycle bin or any other) via the registry as well. If you ever used the old Win98 desktop themes, it had various icons for the recycle bin and all the others. I think XP and 2K have that too, but in earlier times when my computer didn't have the abundance of cheap memory, it seemed to me it bogged things down a bit. Now running XP Pro with more RAM aded to the same machine, the performance seems to be more constant whatever the extras are that I'm running, but I'm just bored with the themes (of which there were only about four that I thought had any coolness).
On Norton SystemWorks 2003 I just run autoprotect at the default settings, plus the protected recycle bin and LiveUpdate. Those don't seem to be a drag at all, but yeah, on a machine with less than today's usual 256 Megs of RAM, they seem to stop it in it's tracks.
