    Hi,

    What I'm looking for is exactly the opposite of this:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896984

    I never use the Send files to another computer functionality, and find the
    constant appearance of this icon on the desktop intensely irritating. Is
    there anything that can be done to prevent this happening?

    Any assistance gratefully received.

    Mark

    P.S. WinXP Pro + SP2 and all the Microsoft Update patches.

    Possible fix...

    I had this problem too, drove me insane when running a fullscreen app....
    I'm not sure if it depends on the device your computer is trying to pair with, but mine was finding another laptop i use as a server via infrared.
    So...
    Start
    Control Panel
    Wireless Link
    Under 'Infrared', uncheck the top two boxes (display an icon/play sound)
    Apply

    Fixed! (hopefully:D)
