How To Remove Nokia/Sony Ericsson Browser Icon From My Computer

After installing Nokia or Sony Ericsson PC Suite you might have noticed an icon being generated in your My Computer window.I frequently connect my Sony Ericsson P1i to my computer but for transferring files I use the File transfer mode in the phone which allows me use my memory card as an external drive.I have never used this icon to interact with it which lead to the question how I could remove that Sony Ericsson file manager icon in My Computer.

 NOkia Sony P1i

Also I wouldn’t like to uninstall the PC Suite from my system since I might use them for firmware updation and so on.The Nokia Phone Browser entry in My Computer is connected to the PhoneBrowser.dll and all that has to be done is to unregister the dll in windows to remove the entry in My Computer.

In the Command prompt(press window key + R and type cmd) go to the folder where you installed the PC suite.This is done by typing cd "location of the folder" in the command prompt.In my case it is

Nokia Phones

cd E:Program FilesNokiaNokia PC Suite 6

Now to unregister the dll and to remove the icon from my computer just use this command “regsvr32 /u PhoneBrowser.dll”. Now refresh the My Computer window and notice the changes.

Sony Ericsson Phones

Dll to be unregistered in this case is FM.dll

E:Program FilesSony EricssonMobile4File Manager>regsvr32 /u FM.dll

UNregister P1i SOny Ericson

Update for Nokia phones:

To undo this(to register the dll again) just type

regsvr32  PhoneBrowser.dll

Update for Sony Ericsson Phones:

To undo this(to register the dll again) just type
