Somehow I acquired an icon that calls AVRACK and there's
no info as to who installed it or what I might want it
for. Any clues as to its source? Thanks.

It is software for the hardware. Run it and see. It allows you to play vcd's
and is part of your motherboard (Shuttle) software and driver pack.

The point is, I lived happily without this unasked for addition
for two years, I don't like it on my desktop or cluttering up
my machine, I'd like to cleanly uninstall it but it gives me no
way other than by Search and manual delete.......and I hesitate to
do that because it will probably cause something I do want, to malfunction.

Then remove the icon from the desktop. You must have updated your
soundcard drivers. The Avrack program is tiny, takes up almost no room,
and won't hurt anything. Just get rid of the icon.

Bill, my 2 cents:
I would keep it. Move the shortcut on the desktop (the icon you're
referring to is a shortcut, isn't it?) into a folder on the start menu or
into the program's own folder.

I keep a folder named "Hardware" in the start menu for all hardware
specific shortcuts. As you mention, many never get used but "just in case,"
it's there's if you do happen to need it and not cluttering up the desktop.

Thanks, Sharon. Most sensible advice. Y'never know when something
might prove useful. It's another one of those cases where I didn't ask
for this blessing but it was bestowed nonetheless.
