    If I delete the file that a shorcut is linked to, I can't delete the shortcut.

    I've uninstalled bioshock from my PC to free up some space, and now whenever I right click the shortcut on the start menu or anywhere else, explorer just stops responding. It's always happened to me, even when I had Vista 32bit installed. Any1 know of a solution or had this weird issue before?
