I am running XP Professional, The problem I have is, I have a registry cleaner program that also cleans up any invalid shortcuts. Everytime I run this program it deletes three icons from my quicklaunch toolbar, the icons are, MY COMPUTER, MY DOCUMENTS, CONTROL PANEL. Is there any way that I can prevent these icons from being deleted, I have looked in my Registry cleaner program to see if there is any way of setting it to ignore these icons, but I could find nothing.
If the registry cleaner is deleting valid shortcuts I don't think it's a very good registry cleaner. I use Regseeker which has never caused me any problems click here. I also use Ccleaner for general computer cleanup click here
Most cleaners show you a list of stuff and you can decide not to delete an item, but suggest you take advice of Gongoozler and use another cleaner. If you don't fancy his one then this works very nicely also: click here
My cleaner does not give me any such option to select what I want/don't want to delete, I however like this program as it cleans up and does a good job of clearing up other undesirable items as well. The question I have is, IS THERE ANY WAY OF PROTECTING A FILE/ICON FROM DELETION.
