I've searched high and low with no luck.

Is there a way to disable the WMP icon from appearing on new users desktops. It's obviously not in the AllUserProfiles\Desktop folder.

Can it be disabled completely?
There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who understand binary, and those don't.

There are a number of ways to set it. Since mine is a corporate image, I use the Group Policy settings:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;===============================
; WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER
;===============================

; Prevent Desktop Shortcut
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer]
"DesktopShortcut"="no"

; Prevent Quick Launch Shortcut
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer]
"QuickLaunchShortcut"="no"
