    To remove the icon from your Desktop, simply drag it to the Trash. If it reappears when you restart your Mac then you've most likely got your iDisk Syncing switched on. If you take a look in System Preferences under the .Mac pane, click on the iDisk tab and you'll see an option to switch Syncing on and off.

    iDisk Desktop

    I had the same problem. and an annoying message that my WebDAV file system Authentication required my password, this popped up every 5 mins and wouldn't accept my password because my iDisk account had lapsed.
    Contacted MobileMe support who said to Open system preferences, click on Mac and then just delete my user name and password followed by a restart.

    It works and sanity is restored
