The Recycle Bin Does Not Appear on the Desktop After You Install Norton AntiVirus
Article ID: 819255 - View products that this article applies to.
After you install a version of Norton AntiVirus, the Recycle Bin no longer appears on the desktop.
This issue occurs because Norton AntiVirus changes the name of the Recycle Bin to "Norton Protected Recycle Bin." Only the words "Norton Protected" appear below the icon on the desktop because there is not sufficient space to display the longer name.
