    Did you use some sort of tweaking app to remove the arrow overlay from your shortcut icons?

    Murphy78 once made a script which rebuilds icon cache, maybe he can send it to you.

    But first answer Belarathon's question :)

    Win+R ->
    Code:
    ie4uinit.exe -show
    This will rebuild your icon cache. No tools required.

    I don't have it. Maybe it is/was empty and some cleaners has removed it? Don't know. You may try, maybe helps, although I doubt in it.

    Yup, registry cleaner would do it, copy mine add it back:D

    I learned the hard way using registry cleaners, I just use mine to empty recycle bin & other simple things, never anything to do with registry, Revo Uninstaller Pro takes care of most.:D

    The 29 parameter is responsible for the shortcut overlay icon.
    The shell icons key DOES NOT EXIST by default.
    lobo11, you have disabled the shortcut overlay icon with some tool. That's why you have the key and the parameter.
