Hi r5r4y.:)

The icon in question is the Windows 7 icon for Internet Checkers. Nothing strange about it at all.

If the icon is troubling you, you can hide it by right clicking on the icon and selecting "hide this game".

Hope this helps.

When I install a game in Windows 7 and Windows recognizes it it dumps the game's shortcut in the Game folder of the Start Menu. That wouldn't be a problem except Windows 7 prevents the game from creating the shortcuts it would have created had the operating system not been Windows 7- things like...
