    Duplicated icons in Start Menu


    I have a little application that scans for hijacks, malware, etc, is a verified .exe file. I want to pin it to start, it does, but with duplicates. I try removing one, but it remove the other also.

    I tried deleting the problematic icons from C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs then after a restart i pinned again and icon and for the moment there are no more duplicates.

    Thanks for your reply

    Tried that, but without success.

    There is only one instance in "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs" but in start menu there was 3.

    Stranger when deleted the shortcut from the folder, restarted, then tried pinning to start again it created 4 duplicates?!?1?
    In short still have same problem.

    Its more of an annoyance more than anything else but still irritating and hope someone can come up with an answer.

    Thanks in advance.
