Windows 7: Stubborn icon

Stubborn icon

After Wednesday's Win7 OS patch install, I ended up with an icon for Libraries on the desktop. I do not use libraries and do not want the icon. Right click does not allow for delete. I opened the OS tool 'Desktop Icon Settings' and only the Recycle box is checked off. In the area below there's no icon that says libraries but one with a folder with a picture of myself (sort of) which may be the icon I created for file explorer.

How can I get rid of the library icon?

Although the thread title is add remove, the body only talks about changing the size of taskbar icons?

What are you talking about? Theres a file called Remove_libraries_desktop_icon.reg. You need to download it and double click and then say YES at the prompt. The following is the text of the file.

Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
"{031E4825-7B94-4DC3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMe nu]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
"{031E4825-7B94-4DC3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}"=dword:00000001

You can also copy and paste that text in notepad and save the file as ABC.reg. Then double click on it.

Contrast is Stubborn Too.
Alright, I think I fixed the brightness problem. Now, how do I fix the contrast problem? Sometimes I have to adjust the contrast 3 times per day. It's stubborn, as it's constantly going back to the middle position. I want it 75% of the way down, and I want it to stay that way. How do I fix this? lol
