Deleting dead start menu shortcuts?

Post by huldu » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:01 am

How does one do this? The programs doesn't exist, they're deleted but for some reasons they still appear in the start menu desktop as white icons. When you click on one of these it says "could not invoke program.lnk" which is no surprise since it doesn't exist. So why is it even showing up? I just have no idea how to get rid of these white dead shortcuts. Most of the time when I uninstall a program the shortcut is removed, if not then I have a program that does it for me, but in some rare cases they're stuck there and I can't find them anywhere.

Hello huldu,

If the Sandboxie icon is stuck in your start menu bar, please try the Sandboxie installer to fully uninstall Sandboxie:

Otherwise, please provide more information regarding what's the issue and what's the Sandboxie version that you are using.
