Can't Remove "My Docs" from Desktop!


How can I get rid of this damn icon? It's called "My Docs". It is not listed as one of the icons to hide when you go into the desktop properties.

Can't rename
Can't move
Can't rmdir in safe mode


Any ideas?

Never seen a "My Doc's" on the desktop, unless you mean "My Documents"
