A robot cleaner has deleted the shortcut arrows on my icons. How can I restore them, anyone?

Run RegEdit by typing regedit in Start - Run.
In RegEdit find and select HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/lnkfile
To show the arrow there should be an empty string value in the right box called IsShortcut.
If it is not there, go to the Edit menu in RegEdit and select New - String Value then name the value IsShortcut.
Hopefully, that will bring the shortcut arrows back.
