Hello Jamie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you shortcut arrow overlay has been change to the uninstall icon that you are seeing instead. The free program in Method Two of the tutorial below will allow you to either change it back to the shortcut arrow, or remove it completely.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,

Anytime Jamie.

What part didn't work?

What happened when you used the program to change the shortcut arrow back to the default arrow, or remove it?

well I tried that method 2.
when I chose no arrow, it asked to log out, but then it hit an error message saying that it couldn't log out.. so I logged off myself to see if that would work but it didnt..

You might give METHOD ONE a try then since you are wanting to remove it.
