Hello ScorpionKing,

It seems you may have used the wron 32-bit or 64-bit download, or did not unblock the Blank.ico file before moving it to the C:\Windows folder. Double check each step as you go through it again to see if this may be the case.

Hope this helps,

You can also remove the arrow with Ultimate Windows Tweaker, a free program that doesn't have to be installed, just extract the folder and run the exe file. Lots of other useful tools too
