You're welcome Marnel. I hope that it comes back as clean afterwards. Just to be safe, it wouldn't hurt to scan your system each day for a few days to help make sure that it's still clean.

is it bad if I can't find Inkfile under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT? I was trying to follow option 2 tutorial when I ran into that problem :/

Hello Gouron,

It's Lnkfile (L) instead of Inkfile (I) , but you may not have reached lnkfile yet. You would need to scroll past all of the file extenstions listed first before the alphabet starts over to then find lnkfile.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The reg file worked fine on my system
"manage works again"
But after restart little arrows on shortcuts are back.
Again remove arrows, manage not working.
So I think its a linked thing manage or arrows.

Hello Joe,

It is if you use the old XP method to remove shortcut arrows. See the blue note box at the top of the tutorial for info and a link on how to remove shortcut arrows in Windows 7 instead.
