Alternative LNK-IconHandler v.1.1.0.1

As you all should know, the internal IconHandler of Windows XP, Vista and 7 for PIF and LNK-files is vulnerable.

The fix proposed by most websites is to completely remove the IconHandler. This results in a chaotic UI since all icons are replaced with a default white sheet. I did not want to live with that and created my own IconHandler. It is not perfect, but the most important icons are shown, only some special icons like ControlPanel, My Computer or similar are replaced by default icons.

My handler only supports LNK-files, not PIF-files. The installer should remove the handler for PIF-files and replace the LNK-IconHandler, but you are on the safer side if you execute the Microsoft FixIt-Tool first or remove the handlers manually.

The archive contains all source code and a compiled version for 32bit (x86) and x64 as well.

USE THIS SOFTWARE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Update: Just found a tool, that does this job better. It is called GData LNK Checker.
Attention: This tool won't fix PIF-files, only LNK. So ust the manual microsoft-solution for them!
