Hello,
I just noticed that the Icon for the Recycle Bin on the desktop changed into a "Moon". It shows quarter phase when empty and full moon when there is something in it. I can't seen to find any information on how to reset it back to the original icon.

Does anyone know what program would change it to a "MOON" and more importantly how to change it back? I get a little nervous (potential virus??) when things like this occur.

Hi Keith,
Once again you are a lifesaver and many thanks. I suppose I should have known this but sometimes one forgets things. I have MS Plus installed and I must have been fiddling with changing the screen saver which changed that icon... When I changed my screen saver back, apparently it didn't reset that icon???

I think you just have to entirely turn off Plus. Course, I haven't used Plus since 98 so...
