|mlinne, several things come to mind. Probably simplest is to just hilite the shortcut and delete. Whether or not that'll do the trick sorta depends on how the shortcut originates. If it comes back on the next boot, maybe it's in the startup menu? Start>settings<control panel>startup, edit the list?|
Still there? Maybe it's embedded itself as a worm/trojan? It does that. There're special removal tools around, Google?
