So I recentaly recived a nice Compaq Presario R3000, quite an upgrade on what I used to work on.


Anyway....

I just performed a clean install of Windows XP Home. Then I took out my flash drive and ran back and forth from my sisters computer downloading drivers.

So this one piece of hardware, witch is a wireless bluetooh card that is built in, Has a driver caleld "Bluetooth by HP" I have installed it and that seems to make the card work very well.

But... I am a very organized person and I absolutely HATE IT when I have icons on my desktop that I don't use. It really gets on my nerves...

So I tried ol' click and press delete. Nothing happens, I right click the icon and theirs no Delete option. If I unistall Bluetooth by HP it gets rid of the icon but also the driver.

Any one have any experiance with this and can help me get rid of this icon?

Much apperciated.

Well, most of the time, if you use Tweakui you can "disable" the icon (doesn't delete it, but it isn't shown.) This also works well with icons such as " network neighborhood" and "recycle bin".

Wow that would help it, as long as it doesn't show and I can still use that desktop area on my computer that will help.


Thanks =)


EDIT: I installed it and disabled the icon. Worked like a charm. Thanks =)
