Hi Ponyman,
It might help to get an internet history eraser such as Evidence Eliminator, tho' I don't think a free download is any longer available, but there are others possibly from click here or from click here. The point of this advice is that these history eliminators often have sections in which you can enter files and folders which are difficult to erase and they remove them. Find the path of the icon you can't get rid of by using Windows Files and Folders Search, enter it in the relevant section of the history eraser and bobs yer uncle. Tho' Evidence Eliminator is pay to download software from click here there was a version on a free disc issued by PC Pro March 2002 edition, perhaps they have a few copies left, it might be worth a call to them.
