I think you are using a wrong approach. It is NOT a real folder (and a shortcut neither). It is an icon. It's smth like Internet Explorer icon - type object on the Desktop.

It has no such a line like "Properties" when I right-click it.

In Fingerprint Reader > Control Center > File Safe > Personal Safe,
Does it give you the option to not show the icon ?

I have had this problem for ages and eventually tracked it down to Protector Suite. If you uninstall that through Add/Remove Programs or Programs & Features (assuming you don't use that program) the icon should go away.
