Could someone tell me please how to remove the 'Network Neighborhood' Icon from my desktop.(Win 98, - IE6) It's impossible to drag into the Recylebin. I am not connected to a network.

Install Tweak UI from a magazine cover disc or download from microsoft or install from any Win/98/98/ME disc (I think it is in the powertoys folder) This will give you the option to remove the icon.

You can right click it and select properties.

Then add the Microsoft Family Logon which under the Clients/Microsoft section after clicking the Add button.

Then remove Client for Microsoft Networking.

Restart PC and it should be gone!

Hi Cyabro,
thank you very much for your suggestion to remove this unwanted icon, - it worked a treat, the icon has disappeared, - never to be seen again. Good luck to you.

Hi BC,
Thank you for taking an interest in my problem,I didn't download Tweak UI, but used another easier option to remove the icon, but might have a look at Tweak UI anyway, - thanks again.

for those who like no icons on the screen a easy thing to do is set desktop to 'veiw as web page' and set it to 'hide icons when veiwed as web page'

if you need the icons you simple toggle the 'veiw as web page' off.
