For the IE icon…do you need ANYTHING to be on the desktop? You could always use the NoDesktop registry policy:

Load DEFAULT USER hive (or add it to Local Machine…but you probably don’t want to remove the desktop for the Administrator or User accounts)

HKEY_USERS*default user*SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer

Add REG_DWORD “NoDesktop” with a value of 1 to hide all desktop items and disable right-clicking on it.
