Sorry, can't help you there, but I did notice you also have minimal RAM (256) for a reasonably modern machine, that is minimal. Unless you upgrade that, you should probably avoid the newer web browsers, especially IE7 or 8. And keep start up programs to nil. You will also need to schedule virus scans for when you don't need your machine for anything else.
Advice not asked for..Yes. But advice!

I don't think you can do it (well at least not easily). At the very least you will have to put up with the default icon instead.

It might be possible to do it somehow by modifying one or more OS program files. This would be complex and hardly worth the risk to my mind.

All the links in #4 are to "Icon Extractors". These scour the system to find wadges of icons and are fine if you want to actually change the icon but not if you want no icon at all. You might however find a very minimal looking icon that way, if that would be a secondary option. The same icon space will be reserved tho.

... which is exactly why I commented on post #4 because those links do not do what you requested.

I think my #3 summed it up. It is not as easy to do as you might think. You would need an operating system designer to alter system files in order to achieve it. Those folks are usually far too busy earning big bucks to hang about on computer forums.

EDIT:
Looks like you've now sorted it out below. I'm surprised but delighted to see that there is a neat way forward after all.

Thanks davi albuquerque, I could see from your original image you did not want to alter system files, but not knowing how to do what you wanted, I thought one of the editors in my links may help.

Not having Photoshop installed, I still do not know how you did it.
The program I use may have the ability to do the same, once I know how you did it.
