    My Library has an icon I can’t get rid of. I have tried everything I can think of and can’ stop the icon from reappearing There must bea setting somewhere over-riding my settings. Here is what I have done.

    1. Created a HomeGroup and now when I go to Network and Sharing Center it says Joined HomeGroup; from Network and Sharing Center I go to Home Group and Settings and create a profile for my HomeGroup. Here is the configuration:
    2. Under Share libraries and printers I checked Documents
    3. Under Advanced Settings I checked
    1.Turnon network discovery
    2.Turnon file and print sharing
    3.Turnoff Public sharing
    4.Mediastreaming on
    5.Filesharing connections - Enable filesharing for devices that use 40-56 bit encryption
    6.Turnon password protection sharing
    7.AllowWindows to manage homegroup connections (recommended)
    4 Under Public
    1. Turnoff network directory
    2. Turnoff file and printer sharing
    3. Turnoff Public folder sharing
    4. Mediastreaming off
    5. Filesharing connections – enable file sharing devices that use 40-56 bit encryption
    6. Passwordprotection sharing – on

    Now when I go to Windows Explorer and click on Libraries anicon appears that says Documents. I don’t want this icon to appear. I right click the icon and click onProperties. A window appears. There are twolocations in the Window: My Documents(C:\Users\KCAV) and Public Documents (C:\Users\Public). I move the locationswith the Remove facility and click Apply. The locations disappeared from thewindow, and I clicked OK. The Documentsicon is visible on the Libraries page. I right clicked the icon and clickedDelete and it disappeared.
    I closed Windows Explorer and went back to Libraries and theicon was back. The My Documents folder is set to Share with nobody. What should I do to stop the icon fromappearing in my Library?
