    You can find that there is no delete option when you right click on the recycle bin icon in window 7.
    You can restore recycle bin icon by following the instructions.
    Click on the start button
    then go to control panel.
    And then Appearance and Personalization
    On left of the side bar, click on the change desktop icons..
    With the help of desk top settings, you can customized your desk top.
    Check on the recycle bin icon and then click ok.

    I think your computer gets infected by virus because of this your desktop icon disappeared and control panel window do not open. You have to download and install standard antivirus. Scan your computer in safe mode. To enter safe mode press f8 during windows booting. After entering in safe mode run your antivirus and delete the detected virus. And restart your computer again in normal mode and try check out your problem. I think this can be solve your problem.
