Try deleting it in Safe Mode. To start in Safe Mode restart the computer and keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen loads. Then select Safe Mode from the menu which shouls appear - use the arrow keys to navigate the menu to Safe Mode and then press Enter.

I had the same problem and failed to find a way to delete it.

I removed it from the desktop using Tweakui in Powertoys for XP click here.

Under the Desktop tab you can remove the tick from and it will not appear on the desktop.
