This may sound like a very silly thing to be concerned about, but how can I remove the NETWORK icon from my desktop?

I try and keep my desktop as tidy as possible... and on one of my computers it has this NETWORK icon that I cannot get rid of. BTW... i am not even hooked up to any kind of network.

Thanks in advance. :)

Yes you are....the internet is also a network. It is a shell icon and you erally can't get rid of it unless you remove all of your network settings.

EDIT: Or go to start>run and type Regedit. Press enter;
Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Right click on explorer and choose NEW> DWORD
Name it NoNetHood (typed just as you see it here)
Double click on NoNetHood and assign a value of 1
Reboot to take effect.
