Oh. You get rid of them from somewhere in the menu. I googled for it and found the answer, but I don't remember exactly. Something like "System Tools" and "Applications" and then "Nautilus".

Applications ---> System Tools ---> Configurations Editor --- > apps ---> nautilus --> desktop

If you didn't find out already
