Windows 7: Remove entry from "My Computer"

Remove entry from "My Computer"

Hi,

Since some time I have the "Nokia Lumia 920" entry in my My Computer tree.
But since almost the same time it is somehow corrupted - when I click it / hover it or something similar ms explorer crashes.

So after ignoring it for a long time, I think it is time to remove it - but the question is how?
How do I remove the entry from there.



KR,
Max

Normally it caused by corrupted hard drive or file check HD for errors or you may be able to remove it from cmd prompt
