I was one of those guys that went to the registry and deleted the lnk file to get rid of the shortcut arrows in vista. I was stupid and did the same thing with Windows 7, not knowing that it would screw up the jump list feature in 7.
So today I got wind of a simple registry fix that would have everything working again. So....I downloaded the fix, merged it into the registry, and now instead of icons on my desktop, I have a little white graphical interface covering them(see attached (screenshot).
I hope somebody can help.....I have faith.
On a bright note.........my jump lists age fine!
I am moving this post to performance and maintenance.I didn't realize I was posting it here
