Have you tried System Restore? I would try a Restore Point that was created prior to the download.

Hello Rid, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is a issue with your shortcut overlay icon. You could use the free program in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below to change the shortcut overlay icon back to the default arrow.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
