    If the shortcut is in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
    folder, then it will be deleted from all user accounts when you remove it
    from any account.

    To fix the problem, place a copy of the shortcut in the C:\Documents and
    Settings\<user account>\Desktop folder. (Where <user account> is the account
    where you want the shortcut to appear.)
