How odd. Was it part of some skin or theme you installed?

Where was this file located at?

Nope not a part of any theme in my opinion. I just installed the fresh OS in my system that time. Same place of Iconcache C:\Users\anuo512\AppData\Local

For the second option, you don't need to restart. Right-clicking the desktop and selecting "Refresh" worked for me.

Hello testrun, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you unblock the Blank.ico file first before moving it into C:\Windows in step 2C? If not, then you will need to move the file in C:\Windows to your desktop, unblock it, and move it back to C:\Windows.

If that doesn't help, then OPTION ONE is great for removing the shortcut arrow.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
