This worked for me. Right click on the icon and go to properties, second box along will probably be shortcut go to that and click find target. What that will do is show you where the main file is, the icon you're deleting will just be a shortcut to it and when the computer restarts it will just be put back by the main program. Now if you delete the file thats shown and then delete the icon on the desktop that should be it. Word of warning here though, I cannot guarantee that deleting this file will not affect anything else. This is what I did and it worked perfectly but I was prepared to blank and reinstall everything if it somehow mucked things up. It didn't muck things up but I feel its only fair to point this out to you. Perhaps it might be better to see if anyone else comes up with a solution they feel is 100% safe if there is such a thing.
