Thanks, but none of this works. When i right click the icon nothing happens at all, and when i go to delete it from the organise menu or just press delete button, nothing happens. I now have 3 icons with the same name and cannot delete any of them. Its a strange bug in windows 7. I tried restarting, and registry mechanic scan.
By the way im talking about the Games folder directly from the start menu, not the one in All Programs. For some reason there are different?
Try doing this to see for your self:
Create a shortcut to google.com on your desktop. copy and paste it into the Games folder (the one in front of the start menu where computer is etc) now try deleting it
