I want to remove the small curved arrow that Windows superimposes over the lower left corner of desktop shortcut icons.

Google TweakUI, an option in there will allow you to disable this.

Be aware that there is no obvious way to distinguish a shortcut from a proper file if you turn the little arrow off. So if you're a fan of dumping things on the desktop, just be careful its a shortcut you're removing and not a full file.

I don't think I can install tweak UI on my operating system (2000 Pro) because it can't find the entry point in the dynamic link library:

TweakUiPowertoySetup[1].exe – Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point GetDllDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

Never mind. I downloaded the XP version when I actually have 2000 Pro.
