Remove "My Bluetooth Places" From Desktop (Windows XP)

HOW TO remove "My Bluetooth Places" from desktop on Windows XP?

The first comment in this article says it all:

Start>Control Panel>Display>Desktop>Customise Desktop>Clean Desktop>Check "My Bluetooth Places">Next>OK>

This will create an “unused icons” folder on the desktop, simply move this to the recycle bin and voila.

Worked for me.

    Dear Friend, It was a very simple way to remove my Bluetooth places icon from the desktop, instead the complicated registry edit. I have done it very easily. Thank you very much and 3 cheers to you...
