Have you tried just disabling XP from displaying the Administrative tools folder.
Right click on start -> Properties
Click Customize next to whichever start menu you use
For Default XP Start Menu
1. Click on Advanced Tab
2. Under Start Menu items scroll all the way to the bottom
3. Under System Administrative Tools set the radio button to "Don't display this item"
For Classic Start Menu
1. Under Advanced Start Menu Options, uncheck the "Display Administrative Tools" box
I'm not sure why it would be popping up on your desktop, but see if it works.
Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
