You did not say where or how you wanted to remove the icon. Just simply right click on it and choose delete. It will remove the icon (since it is a shortcut) but not remove the program.

I know I can delete it manually but I need to suppress it from the desktop for all users that logon. I could do it by setting the preferences with a new IEAK deployment but that is too late since I have IE already on the desktops.

I cant remove Outlook Express as a program.

If you have admin access from a WINNT server, you can change the profiles of all of your clients in one swoop, including removing items from the desktop, the task bar, ect. and available programs. Inotherwords, when they log on, the system will start and all they will see will be a blank screen. The only keys that will work will the CTRL ALT DEL (Logoff). If this is what you are looking for, let me know and I will email you a list on the removal.

What I was looking for is the registry writes the deployment kits make to suppress the creation of the short cut for each new user. I wanted to avoid any system policy changes.

I guess I phrased my question poorly.
