Glad you got it figured out. I hate when "unique" stuff happens to me and nobody can help...anywho, the only thing I've got to work well with the shortcut remover is "Ultimate Windows Tweaker," otherwise, there's a tutorial on changing the .bmp in the Tutorials section...

Using 7Tweak here. No shortcut arrows on my machine, no problems. Glad you got it fixed, toglenn.

After reading the comments here I realized the problem is not common and might be unique to me so I started up a second computer loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium and found I had the same problem with that computer so I had to figure out what was comman with both computers. I thought it might be software but then I remembered something I did to both machines.

In an effort to remove the arrow from the desktop short cuts I read a post suggesting a mod to the registery. It removed the arrows alright but it also gave me the taskbar icon problem which I was not aware of at the time. The mod was;

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT ->lnkfile (LNKFILE)
Delete "IsShortcut" key

Once I replaced this key everything appears to be normal and I have added a new icon to the Taskbar.

Again I'm sorry for the lack of information and thanks to everyone for their efforts.

Now does anyone know a good way to remove the arrows from the Desktop shortcuts (again sorry but I couldn't resist the temptation)?

I have had the same problem in the Taskbar for months...I went into the Registry and changed "NoIsShortcut" to "IsShortcut" - problem solved.
