I too have seen that on more than 1 occasion.

On my current desktop Win7 placed a link from an elevated install of
xp mode.  This file was in my profile but I had no permissions to
write or delete it so when I logged in my profile could not overwrite
the file I had no permissions to write.. I ended up booting a linux
livecd to get rid of the bad link in my profile since no method I
tried would give me permission to delete it..
