remove Homegroup Icon

from http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/unable-to-remove-homegroup-icon/699c4550-c88e-4e0c-b30c-339ca25e52f8

 

Had the same problem after an update of 20 not important components.
Can’t tell witch one caused the problem.

This worked for me win 7 – 64 bit home premium

1) Drive to “Folder Options”
2) Click “View”
3) Scroll down to “Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)” it must be checked
4) Un-Check  the Check -box
5) Click “Apply”……the Icon will be removed from your desktop
6) Re-Check the Check-box …..the icon will not be back

Have fun and try not to mess around with registry 🙂 if you do not know exactly what are you doing

I am an academic researcher working on Offshore Geotechnical Engineering. My blog aims to write down some work related trivial things and tricks about software, programming. It is basically a memo for me to back up some thoughts and small details. But I am more than happy if someone would visit and discuss.
