There is no error message, there is no option to even delete it, can't drag it to the recycle bin.

I installed FlashGet earlier today and it must have done it. It is just anoying.

I uninstalled it too, download managers are overrated.

Its quiet fishy that FlashGet would do something like that. Try to remove using Unlocker make sure in the list it just say that shortcut if you have more that one application list don't delete it.

Hope this helps

Well, I'll keep trying things they are not shortcuts they are exactly what would be in the Computer folder.

Maybe something in Disk Managment Can help.

Maybe it's a good idea to do a System Restore

Captain's idea of a System Restore is a good one.

They are just links to the C drive? If you click on one, it opens C, right?

If drives are showing up inside a folder on another volume, there must be something corrupt in the system files somewhere. Open a command prompt as the administrator and type in:
Code:
sfc /scannow
Let it search, and tell us what is says.
