Shortcut Cleaner is a utility that will scan your computer for Windows shortcuts that have been hijacked by unwanted or malicious software. Malware removal guides and support are available in the Majorgeeks Support Forums.
When run, Shortcut Cleaner will scan various locations on your computer for Windows shortcuts. When a shortcut is detected, it will check properties for a possible hijacking. If one is detected, it will automatically clean the shortcut so that it no longer opens the offending program or website. When the Shortcut Cleaner has finished scanning your hard drive, it will create a log file on your desktop called sc-cleaner.txt and then display it. This log file will contain a list of all the shortcuts that were detected and cleaned.
As of version 1.2.3, Shortcut Cleaner will also clean hijacked Registry entries associated with known hijackers.
