I'm using Windows 7 Professional 32-bit and am trying to remove the Internet Explorer 8 icon from my desktop as I don't use it.
- Turning IE 8 off from the Control Panel but the stubborn icon still remains.
- Right-clicking on the icon and selecting Delete but it takes me to the Internet Properties window.
- Dragging the icon to the Recycle Bin but it still remains.
I'm running avast! Antivirus so I don't think it's a virus. What can I do to get rid of this icon?
