Cyberlink Icon, Delete The Shortcut

May 14, 2010

A registered version of Cyberlink Power2Go came with my laptop. I only use it occasionally but do not wish to uninstall it. I try to keep my desktop free of clutter and the program had an icon ever since my first boot. I delete the shortcut and it disappears as with any other program, into the recycle bin. When I next boot the PC the icon has recreated itsself.


Desktop Shortcut Icon

Mar 20, 2009

Since installing IE8 RTM in Vista SP1 x86 I've been having some problems with internet shortcut icons not displaying correctly on my desktop. I've tried deleting and redoing them, tried using AM Deadlink to refresh my Favourites icons to no avail. They show normally in Favourites but show as a smaller version within a white frame on the desktop. This doesn't seem to effect all of them, just some.

I've attached two thumbnails to illustrate what I mean. The first one is the Canada Post item in Favourites and the second one is the same shortcut on the desktop. As you can see there there's another one doing the same thing for I think I am right in saying that it's not a case of rebuilding the system icon cache as that only effects system icons, am I right? FYI desktop resolution is 1680 x 1050 and I have the desktop icon size set to Classic.

Why Does Shortcut Icon Have WinSecurity Shield?

Aug 4, 2009

So I've had to replace my computer and am just getting acquainted Vista...

I'm running Vista Home Premium x64.

I loaded a program (Corel Painter IX) and placed a shortcut on my desktop... Windows has seen fit to place a little "Windows Security shield" over the icon. When I look at the shortcut's properties, the icon appears without the shield.

Why has it done this, and how can I address it?

Can't Get An Icon To Delete Off Of Desktop

Jan 30, 2010

I didn't really want to start a new thread, but I'm too busy to look through to find a matching problem. I can't get an Icon to delete off of my desktop. The account is a standard account, so when I try to delete the icon, it asks for permission. So I type in the password and it says it deletes it, but it's still there. So I try to delete it from the Administrator account(which is the built in account), but it says I don't have permission to delete it. It's not a big problem, but it's just somewhat annoying.

Desktop Icon Does Not Delete

Oct 2, 2008

I have an icon on my desktop which refuses to get deleted. I have gone looked at various other posts and have tried to follow the steps..unfortunately none of them have helped me get rid of the sticky icon. the file name is RATATO~1.rm and i dont know how it was created.

* deleting in safe mode doesnt help.
* tried shedding the file wid mcafee...doesnt work.
* deleting from cmd prompt doesnt delete.
* have tried to remove the registry entry, there are various entries and am not able to figure out the exact entry.

When i try to delete, the delete program goes into an infinite loop. says " recycling 1 item..calculating time remaining" and gets stuck.

Recycling Bin Icon Won't Delete

Jul 25, 2009

I use Vista home premium but I've only had it for a few days. Anyway, the problem is that my recycling bin automatically deletes any files I put into it so I tried to change he setting but when the property window for it pops up the only thing I can change is to "display delete confirmation dialog". So I attempted to delete it and make another icon using the personalize trick but the recycling bin icon won't delete. Also, I can't make new folders using the right click. Under NEW is empty and nothing else. I'm confused as to why this happens.

Can't Display "delete" Or "property" Icon

Jun 24, 2008

The toolbar of Windows Explorer and file open/save dialog, was customizable (at least choose what to display) on Windows XP, but not on Windows Vista. Well, I don't want much but I hope there's a delete icon because I delete files often. That was possible on Windows XP, but it looks like I have no control over what is being displayed on Windows Vista. Can't I display "delete" or "property" icon instead of those stupid "play all" and "burn" icons?

Refresh Printer Icon Folder, IE A Corrupted Icon

May 14, 2010

PC: HP Windows Media Center PC m8200n; Monitor HP w1907. November 2007. OS: Windows Vista Home Premium. HP: Deskjet F4180. So I noticed that the printer icon for my printer became all white, IE a corrupted icon. So I went online and found information on how to refresh your icon folder. That didn't do anything. So I thought I'd uninstall and reinstall.

I have tried to reinstall my HP software from disc, and I get a 'new PSSWCORE.msi' file. I see the file on the install disc, yet it won't install. 'Network resource is unavailable.'

Now I cannot uninstall it. On my Add/Remove I see:

HP Customer Participation Program 9.0

HP All In One Software 9.0

HP Imaging device Functions 9.0

HP On-Screen Cap/Num/Scroll Lock Indicator

HP Photosmart Essential

HP Update

How can I get these off my PC, and reinstall cleanly so I can use my rinter/scanner again?

Shortcut Arrows

Jul 30, 2009

On my x64 box, TFS power tools was conflicting with Office Communicator. So I blocked Office Communictor from the startup sequence. As I expected, at startup I would get a message "Blocked startup programs" with the option to "run blocked program" if I want to launch Office Communicator explicitly. Good.

Then I uninstalled TFS power tools, and decided to unblock Office Communicator, so it can run at startup again. Unfortunately, the Office Communicator app shows as "Permitted," but is still being blocked at startup.

In other words, I can't unblock Office Communicator. Vista says it is "permitted", but it is not permitted at startup. I tried disabling and re-enabling it, to see if it would clear up, but no good.

How do I force it to be unblocked so that it will run at startup?

How To Change A Shortcut

Dec 17, 2008

Every time I create a shortcut, usually by right-clicking on an executable and then choosing Create Shortcut from the context menu, the default path is always set to, for example, C:Program Files (x86)My Applicationmyapplication.exe. However, I already set my default Program Files and Program Files (x86) location to be in the D: drive. Nature of the Problem After installing Vista Ultimate x64, I installed TuneUp Utilities 2009 and from there, I set the default Program Files location to my second partition which is D:. I expected TuneUp Utilities to make the necessary changes to the registry. To make sure that no programs were left out in C:Program Files and C:Program Files (x86), I manually re-created the 2 folders in D: and then copied all the files and folders inside. I rebooted afterwards. Upon boot, my expectations toward TuneUp Utilities 2009 seemed to be correct because the default now points to D: (whenever I install 64-bit or 32-bit programs). I had no problems running the applications as well.

But a problem arises whenever a shortcut is made. It doesn't matter whether it was created by the installer itself or created manually. The target path always points to C: while the Start In path points to the correct one, which is D:. Whether it be in the Start Menu, on the Desktop, or in the Quick Launch menu, the same behavior happens. It's often a pain to edit the shortcuts manually- doing a right-click > Properties > change C to D > Change Icon > Apply > OK every time I install a new application or decide to create a shortcut for a certain portable app. I believe there's a registry entry that I can change so that the default Shortcut path now defaults to D: instead of C:.

Bypassing The UAC For Certain Programs Shortcut

After creating a shortcut to the link, I attempt to click it. For a few brief seconds, a CMD prompt screen comes up and says something about the file wasn't found. I checked your article to see if I could find a mistake. There wasn't one. I even created a new task using your tutorial, and still it doesn't work. I am wonder if this is a fix with SP1 (I have SP1 by the way)? Is there another alternative?

if you add a shortcut (to a networked computer, so you can copy files),if its off, it'll hang computer. I thought the prob was because I've got an internal card reader. So, I put an entry in the registry to hide them. BUT this didnt fix the hanging (thats how I found out having the computer off (the one I added under sendto as a shortcut, causes it). So, how would you fix this, without removuing the shortcut to the networked computer?
