remove entry from rEFInd?

How can I remove entry from refind, and change a icon?

I have looked in refind.conf but I donīt recognosise the entries.

Here is an excerpt from mine:
menuentry Linux {
	icon EFI/refind/icons/os_linux.icns
	loader \EFI\linux\vmlinuz-generic-3.10.17-2
	initrd \EFI\linux\initrd-3.10.17-2.gz
	options "vga=normal ro root=/dev/sda9"

# A sample entry for loading Ubuntu using its standard name for
# its GRUB 2 boot loader. Note uses of Linux-style forward slashes
menuentry Ubuntu {
	loader /EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi
	icon /EFI/refined/icons/os_linux.icns
This is at the end of the refind.conf file. Instead of completely deleting the second one (which came with the sample file), I disabled it. There you see how to set an icon.

rEFInd scans volumes and directories for boot loaders, look in refind.conf-sample for config entries that control what to scan or not to scan (dont_scan_volumes, dont_scan_dirs, dont_scan_files etc.)
