Monster,

As a test, create a new administrator account for yourself to see if it works properly while logged in the new account. If it does, then you could just copy what you like from the old account, and delete the old account when finished.

That's great news Monster.

Yeah, deleting the IsShortcut registry entry was the way to remove the shortcut arrow in XP, but it's not to be used in Vista and Windows 7 for reasons you have found out why for.

If you like you could use the tutorial below for how to remove the shortcut arrow in Windows 7.
