Still there

Could Ccleaner's registry section identify anything?

Got it did the create shortcut again & to properties went to shortcut tab then the change icon button and looked where the icon was coming from.
Well when I started this thread I had just changed some system files for a custom theme.
It was the TimeDate.bak.cpl I renamed in C:\Windows\System32 & C:\Windows\SysWOW64 & removed them, the .cpl has something to do with the control panel.
Thanks mark solved
