not found in add/remove programs

I have a new laptop which I want to keep free of clutter, there are some shortcuts on the desktop to things like bt broadband but the trouble is i can remove the shortcut but the 'content' is not in add/remove programs so how do i get rid of it?

Assuming that you use BT BB the shortcut is just that - a shortcut.
If you right click on the shortcut(s) and go to properties you can see where the shortcut links to (Target)and if there is a programme associated with it in 'Start in'

Or just hover the cursor over the shortcut to see its path.
