add new short cut in desktop/browse/C: /look in folder program file / extension *.exe/ ok
What?? I have no idea what you are trying to say here, he's not trying to create a new shortcut to anything, this won't help.
Paparitz, what you mean by overlaping? Are they literally covering up the icons? Right-click on the desktop and do a Sort by Type, that should move things around. Then just delete the shortcuts. Did this happen on it's own or are you dragging the icons around and creating shortcuts?
