Can PeerNet of DW WLAN be disabled?

This question has suggested answer(s)

I am setting up a new Inspiron 15R for a novice user.  There is an PeerNet icon which I learned is a method to connect to another computer (perr-to-peer).  As this is a potentially dangerous utility, I want to either get rid of the icon or uninstall it.

It appears to be part of Dell's DW WLAN Card Utility (whose tray icon can be disabled).

I don't want the user to have the ability to access PeerNet.  Is there a way to disable the icon?
