you can remove the icon from Control Panel like this:
1. Search for all files ending with *.cpl (that's a star, then a full stop then the letters CPL, with no spaces anywhere) on drive C:
2. look through them all in the search list for one with a name that looks like the one you want to remove (probably BDA something). The date will also be a clue since all the default XP control panel icons will have the same date stamp.
3. If you think you've found it, don't delete it but make a note of it's location then 'cut and paste' it to the desktop in case you got the wrong one, then you'll be able to put it back in the right place. Now reboot Windows. Check Control Panel. If it's gone you can delete it from the desktop.
