I have no icons on my desktop.
What about in the desktop in explorer?
Good question. I went there and checked while hoping for the best and there was only one Control Panel listed and it will not delete. I can click on it and hit delete and nothing happens.

I have that too, I just put desktop on mine and one takes you right to the control panel and the other expands to let you choose what part of the control panel you want.

Okay, so it's nothing I have mucked up on my box then. If you have it too, it must just be standard.

Thank you, Derekimo.
