Creating a icon on desktop that cannot be deleted

By cirex18 ·
I need help in creating an shortcut on a user?s desktop that cannot be deleted nor has a shortcut arrow on it. Similar to how AOL puts their shortcut icon on user?s desktops. I am specifically looking at way to manipulate the registry to do this. The other icons on the desktop can keep their shortcut arrows. I just want to manipulate this one specific shortcut. The ability to right-click and select delete would be good but not required.

Thanks in advance. If you need me to be clearer I, let me know and I will try.

Basically, you're looking to create a namespace icon, with / without text. Take a look at - it gives you the way to do so, and also has several pre-made icons - but the best part is that with the tutorial you can make your own - I have already made several for mine, and currently have 12 textless icons on my desktop (you *can* have text on them, I just prefer not to).
