Removing icon from Start Menu

by Info-Safety, LLC In reply to spyware skylock

To remove the icon from your Start Menu, right-click the icon and click on Delete. To completely remove all traces of spyware from your computer, you can download Spysweeper from http://webroot.com or Spyware Doctor from http://pctools.com Unfortunately, they require you to pay before they will repair what they detect.

I hope this helps.

Right-click, select properties, then Target. If the previous steps you described actually worked, then there should be no target, and you can delete that shortcut to nothing as easily as closing the properties display, then right-clicking and selecting delete, as described above.
