There are better ways to do that. What you are attempting to do, would not solve the problem.

Thanks for the reply. I visit the URL page, I have follows all this steps earlier but still don't work perfectly. So I decide to remove all icons in the template and see if it will work aw well. Tell me where I can locate the icon if you know please...

If you remove that icon, it will only be replaced by another icon/avatar/thumbnail, which you would have to remove again, and would again be replaced by another icon/avatar/thumbnail and so on, so on...
You can not solve this by removing icons. Believe me.

Anything is possible. Just want to give a trial, I know what am saying. Just indicate which template I can get it.

No. You really don't know what you're saying.
Do it the right way,  not the half baked way you are suggesting

I honestly like to think so too, but in this case while it is possible to strip display.template of all icons, you will probably next be asking how do I disable all smilies....
