is there a registry tweak that allows me to change the recycle bin icon?

A quick search of the registry gives these keys for the recycle bin:

I used the default icons for this, also not sure if it makes any difference or not, I also use only the pop-up to alert of deletions as I don't leave room on my hdd's for the trash I delete from it. If I find a "Recycle" folder, I usually delete it as well, I don't like having stuff I deleted still on my systems.

Hi, is there a registry tweak to disable the following msg when using internet explorer the first time?

#1-- Internet Explorer

When you send infomation to the internet, it might be possible for others to see that information. Do you want to continue?

In the future do not show this message.

#2-- Privacy

The privacy icon appears in the status bar each time a cookie is restricted based on your privacy settings. To see a privacy report. double-click the icon when it appears.

Don't show this message again.

#3-- Information Bar

The information bar alerts you when ie blocked ....

Don't show this message again.

#4-- AutoComplete

Do you want windows to remember this password ...

Don't offer to remember any more passwords

#5-- AutoComplete

AutoComplete remembers entries in web forms, etc...

Would you like to turn AutoComplete on?

note even i apply this regedit the ie still nagged #4 and #5

;-----

There was a registry tweak for WMP9:

;Remove the Queue-it-up, Burn to CD right click options on Windows Media Player files.
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{CE3FB1D1-02AE-4a5f-A6E9-D9F1B4073E6C}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F1B9284F-E9DC-4e68-9D7E-42362A59F0FD}]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8DD448E6-C188-4aed-AF92-44956194EB1F}]

Is there a similar one for WMP10 that removes:

Add to Now Playing List

Add to Playlist...

Add to Sync List

Add to Burn List

???

Also...I've seen this 'google as default search' tweak floating around. I've tried to use it a couple of times but I can't figure out what it does. I believe the code was:

;-----  
;-----  Add Google As Main Search Page
;-----  
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Search Page"="http://www.google.com"
"Search Bar"="http://www.google.com/ie"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL]
""="http://www.google.com/keyword/%s"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search]
"SearchAssistant"="http://www.google.com/ie"
;-----  
;-----  Search with google from the address bar instead of MSN
;-----  
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\G]
@="http://www.google.com/search?q=%s"

What exactly does this do?

Those are:

It will make the "Search Pane" on the left-hand side of IE use google instead of MSN search. Same goes to the "search from toolbar" - whereas normally MSN searches for the term you type in address bar, now google will.

The Search URL gives the ability to directly access google search by prefixing "G" in the address bar. For example, typing "g windows+msfn" will do the same thing as searching from google's own site for the same term.
