Reappearing Desktop Icon

One of my biggest pet peeves is a messy Windows desktop especially with useless desktop icons.

Norton Security always runs in the automatically in the background so there is never a need run it manually from an desktop shortcut.

So why on earth does it insist in placing a desktop icon every time it updates?  It drives me friggin' crazy.

I made a quick scheduled task batch file to delete the icon if it exists ...

@ ECHO OFF
REM IF THE NORTON SECURITY ICON IS ON THE DESKTOP THEN DELETE IT
IF EXIST "%PUBLIC%\DESKTOP\NORTON SECURITY.LNK" (
DEL /F "%PUBLIC%\DESKTOP\NORTON SECURITY.LNK")
REM CLOSE THE COMMAND PROMPT
EXIT
