    Default Removing Shortcut Arrow On Desktop Icons

    I just upgraded to Vista Ultimate, and I was wondering if there was a way to
    get rid of the "shortcut arrows" on my desktop icons. I find them to be
    quite annoying!

    I know that in the past, when I used WinXP, the (free) power toy TweakUI did
    the trick, but I can't seem to find anything comparable for Vista.
