    1. Start regedit.
    2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile
    3. Delete the IsShortcut registry value.

    You may need to restart Windows XP.

    Enjoy.

    Regseeker has a tweak menu as well , and its a must program . Free too but like any Reg tool, backup while your learning to use.

    But noone seems to want to tell him that its not advised to get rid of the icon.
    I hear it might make Win not think of it as a shortcut, and crap out on ya.

    No idea if its true and what it means tho
    Sage goes in the signature field.

    I think I know what you mean ,you can't tell if it's a program short cut or an actual program. But I disable mine with no problems. The arrow that is not the icon. We have enought clutter on our desk top it does look a lot cleaner with out the silly arrow's

    The arrows are useless the desktop looks really better without them.
