    Hello and welcome to the Windows7forums,

    According to your screen shot, the first shortcut has no name. this is not possible.

    In the second shot, is it the magnifying glass you are trying to remove?

    Where exactly does the Finished shortcut open a directory or program.

    I also don't understand what you mean by maps.

    You can remove the -shortcut by running this regisatry script.

    Copy and paste the following lines into NOTEPAD AND SAVE THE FILE IN ANSI format and save it on your desktop as removeshortcut;

    {QUOTE}
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
    "link"=hex:00,00,00,00[/QUOTE]

    Note:

    There should not be a space in the CurrentVersion entry

    Misunderstanding

    -The shortcut got a name, I just hid it for personal information (paranoia)

    -No, it'´s not the glass I'd like to remove, it's the grey dots that stays like that when you press shift or something


    Thanks

    When I press other maps and stuff the grey circle around the map switches to the one I just clicked. THis is VERY annnoying.

    No, it's not the SHORTCUT I want to remove. This grey circle appears everytime I click on a folder or item.

    That's very strange.

    Have you installed any new software lately.

    Do you have a restore point you can use to go back to before this magnifying glass appeared.

    Also, what Windows theme are you using

    What do you mean by maps?

    The Magnifying Glass ISNT THE PROBLEM!

    The Magnifying glass ISNT the problem. THE PROBLEM IS THE CIRCLE AROUND THE FOLDER!

    THE MAGNIFYING GLASS, IS JUST THERE TO MAKE YOU SEE THE GRAY DOTS THAT MAKE A CIRCLE.

    Please help!

    Have you clicked on the finished folder with your mouse cursor?

    Sorry but I don't see any round circle.

    The rectangle is the default setting when you select a shortcut
