Windows 7: I cannot Delete Prince of Persia Link in my GAMES Folder

I cannot Delete Prince of Persia Link in my GAMES Folder

There is a dead link on my "Games Folder." Nothing happens whenever I Double Click it. I can't even Delete it. Next, I tried searching on how to do it and reading the Forums. I even Checked the Registries, the user's files. According to the forums I've read, the registry should be found here

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\

and I should also check here:

C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer

Here's the prob: I cannot find ANY folder related to prince of persia in those places. Dont worry about places like
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games
because its not related/connected to the places I've said before.

can someone help me fix it thank you very much


and OH, I didnt uninstall pince of persia, its still there until now and i can still play the game but the dead link is annoying. PLUS i can MAKE new link for prince of persia EVEN with same name. therefore there are 2 prince of persia, other one is working, other link is dead

Hello Sandrock, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help delete this for you. Step 4 in the tutorial has another location that it may be still at.
