Hi. It would mean the world, if anyone could help me. The problem is basically described on the topic, but here goes a small explanation.

To use custom recycle bin icons:
-Right-click on the desktop
-Click on "Personalize"
-Click "Change Desktop Icons" on the left menu
-The "Desktop Icon Settings" window pops up

After doing this, I changed the default recycle bin icons (full and empty) for Xmas themed ones. And that's it. That's what causes the problem.

I'm sure of this because when I change the icons back to "default", they refresh just fine. The problem is exclusively when I change the default icons.

Is there a way to fix this? I'd really like to use custom icons, as I'm sure many many many on this forum do. Please, help!!!
