    You can delete it if you don't need it in there.

    are you talking about inside the videos folder in your documents or a seperate video folder, this is whats in my video folder below, and the only link/icon thats in there is the sample videos.

    yeah, very strange...is it maybe something about my network?
    seems like it is a sharing folder from MediaCenter to my PC.
    But I checked on Vista and it's all ok...I have not sharing folders enabled, so I don't know where to look for more.
    I hope to find it out, especially now that I fixed everything with MediaCenter.

    Are you asking how to remove a desktop icon?

    Right click the desktop icon you want to remove

    Click Cut (not delete)

    Move pointer to the Recycle Bin

    Click Paste

    If I right click inside the MediaCenter another option menu comes out. That's the problem...there's no delete or cut option there.
    The desktop icon is together with Movies and in truth is a link to my PC desktop that I wouldn't like to see there.
    Is it clear now?
    Bye

    Not clear, but then I don't use media center.
    Sorry that cut and paste didn't get rid of your icon.
