    Question evil spawn of clippy. how can i kill desktop cleaner.

    There are **NO** unused icons on my desktop.
    I put everyone of them there for a reason.
    And I want them all there -- forever.

    Some idiot program keeps popping up claiming that there are unused icons and offering to delete them.

    this is on windows xppro sp3

    I am afraid my wife or someone will be dumb enough to say yes if they get that message.

    I really need to kill off that evil spawn of clippy so it never has a chance to mess up my desktop.

    Can it be done? How???

    yes it is xppro sp3

    thanks for that link!
    did not work exactly as shown there but the clue was enough for me to track it down and remove taht checkmark so hopefully that evil program will never try to run again.

    why does microslop and the pc hardware folks always insist on turning on so many annoying things that we have to track down and kill. bleep! why doesnt microstuff try to make their software more reliable instead of piling on yet more useless "features"?
