Reappearing Desktop Icon
One of my biggest pet peeves is a messy Windows desktop especially with useless desktop icons.
Norton Security always runs in the automatically in the background so there is never a need run it manually from an desktop shortcut.
So why on earth does it insist in placing a desktop icon every time it updates? It drives me friggin' crazy.
I made a quick scheduled task batch file to delete the icon if it exists ...
@ ECHO OFF

IF EXIST "%PUBLIC%\DESKTOP\NORTON SECURITY.LNK" (
DEL /F "%PUBLIC%\DESKTOP\NORTON SECURITY.LNK")
REM CLOSE THE COMMAND PROMPT
