The shortcut icon is presumably in your Recycle Bin!

Right-click on your Start button. Click Explore in the menu.

Scroll down the left-hand pane until you find the Recycle Bin and click on it. In the right-hand pane you'll find a list of everything in your Recycle Bin. Find the Recycle Bin icon, right-click on it and then click on Restore.

Hey there,

I had seen that some of you had a similar issue, as I do NOW.

I have Windows Vista - Home Addition. I had downloaded the program "unlocker
", with still no avail.

Have you fixed your issue?.

I still need any extra help, it would be plausible.

Hope you can help.
