    With Windows Live Messenger (v8) installed you'll have this annoying "My Sharing Folders" icon in your My Computer.
    Of course microsoft gives no option to remove this so here's the method I found on google:

    Method 1
    Click Start, Run and type:
    regsvr32 /u "%programfiles%\MSN Messenger\fsshext.8.0.0792.00.dll"
    Press Enter.
    Note that the above file name may vary depending upon the version and build number for Windows Live Messenger. Therefore, it's better to see if the above file (fsshext.8.0.0792.00.dll) exists. For example, in build 0787, the file name may be fsshext.8.0.0787.00.dll.
    Method 2
    • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
    • Navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ MyComputer \ NameSpace \ {FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-1A497A9B5C2D}
    • Select the {FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-1A497A9B5C2D} key and delete it.
    • Close Regedit.exe

    You could just goto My Computer within TweakUI (if it's installed)
