Game Explorer has 653 icons for Everquest 2?

OK, so my Windows 7 game Explorer has a grand total of 653 icons for Everquest 2.  I tried to remove the registry entries, but whenever I start the game, it seems that an additional icon is added in.  I see it on my laptop (Windows 7, 32bits) and office (64 bit Win 7).  Anyone has similar problems or have a solution to stop what is happening?

I have this problem as well, so let others who play EverQuest 2 on Windows 7. I think they have solved the problem on the Test Server, but as of today it has not been moved to live.

Although it is easy to kill the question to Sony, I would like to know how to delete these extra icons in Windows 7, regardless of who put them there. I should be able to select one (or maybe all) icons and delete them. There is no option to do so, there is no right-click menu for them or any other way to remove them from the system.

If any program places a graphic I should be able to delete it, as in this case there are many duplicate icons. Why Win7 allows duplicates, and where it places?

I don't mind doing the cleaning, but it's a little difficult to do because she is located.

Thank you! Edit: Has managed to find. Duplicates are in the registry.

  • Several desktop icons when I Explore my computer. For example, C:/Users/Amy/Office/Office/Office/Desktop.

    I was delete photos and old docs in my office when I saw it saying: travel (instead of recycling), so I hit the Cancel button, but I think it was too late. Now, my computer has several icons on the desktop when I Explore my computer. For example, C:/Users/Amy/Office/Office/Office/Desktop. I can't use my restore feature. (And then I turned it off to use Spybot Search and Destroy). So now I don't know what to do.  Help :(

    What a pity that you cannot use the system restore - which would be the fastest and easier to solve this problem.  I recommend that you turn on the system restore and immediately make a restore point.

    In which office files are your desktop items (or they are in each file)?  I find a folder with all the icons of your desktop in it and copy it into a new folder named "(Old Desktop) and put it in your Documents folder, just to be on the safe side - if you have a copy of going bacck to if something goes wrong while you are trying to solve the problem."  You can then try to remove the three options (or ones without entries starting with down one in the path of the file) one at a time (by checking the others every time to ensure that they still contain your desktop icons).  Once you get to the last one check again to make sure that it contains all of your items of office and then restart.  If all goes well, which fix the multiple instances of the desktop icons.  If not, read on.

    If this does not work, or if you prefer, you can treat the situation as a corrupt user profile.  To fix this use  If that is the only available Administrator Profile (you need to be an administrator to fix this), enable the Hidden Administrator Account (HAA) using  If you don't remember the password, try nothing because that's probably what you (or seller) did during the installation.  Make sure you have at least two profiles administrator with strong passwords (to remember) as well as your standard profile for daily use.  Once that is done, don't forget to disable the HAA to save it in case it is necessary once again and for safety reasons (since people often try to hack into systems using this account).  Do NOT use the HAA as your administrator account because if you lose the only administrator on the system account or it is damaged again, then you're watered.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Jeffpiatt,

    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    Games explorer is a Microsoft application that contains games that are supported by Microsoft. DOSBox games are third party games that are not supported by Microsoft so that you can not update or display in Games Explorer.

    Thanks and regards.

  • Games folder has stopped working all of a sudden


    My folder of the game has stopped working for some reason any. I mean, it was working perfectly and suddenly, all my games disappeared.


    1. cannot drag ANY game in the folder to create even the simplest links;

    2. no game seems to go in the Games folder of all after installing it. Only Fallout 3, but that too after it write manually using the command prompt. Will not work with other coz' I don't really know for others;

    3. even after manual registry entires, only some will appear and that too, just an icon without any kind of information. The icon is too very bad quality. Most of these managers to game such that VGEE won't even pick up one of these games;

    4. it seems to be two registry entries. Is this normal? PIC is here:

    The files, btw, will be visible only if I add games in the top folder.


    I have already tried to disable and reactivate the control panel Games folder, have tried to create a new registry entries, tried to delete a user and create a new, tried to use software like VGEE, tried to remove the registry entries and start fresh, tried the thing 'show all files' and other things that I remember.

    What should do? How to create links in the folder?

    And please don't say pc format, coz I have over 60 games, averaged around 6 GB, larger be up to 14 GB, which I'll have to download it again and loads of other software too, some have no CD or digital download copy or such. Received more than 1 TB of files, it would be really a copy/paste of pain.

    Is the folder of games btw:
