I somehow acquired an icon in my "Games" folder in the Start Menu (Right Panel) with the Internet Explorer logo and the name of a website that was in my favorites list. I was able to remove it from the "All Programs" list folder but have not been able to remove it from the Right Side Folder. I am unable to do a "Right-Click" on the icon. I have highlighted the icon and tried to delete it using the delete function...all I get is a "Beep". I did several searches trying to find the Name of the webiste and have come up empty. I tried removing the games through the "Programs and Features" but the icon remains. If I click on the icon it does nothing.

It doesn't cause any's just a distraction and a curiousity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
