It is in fact a bug/mis-feature (oh, what else is new? :) of Windows (NT,
95, you name it! - don't know for 98, though). Of course it's in the MS KB
articles - this little gem is Q158682.

The solution (Both scut.exe program - for correcting shortcuts - location
and registry key have been posted on this list.
Found under this subject "Strange problem with icons!" -> just did a grep
for "scut" in my archives.

Hope to help,
