I visited Windows Update tonight and got the latest update for my '98 box. Now, the shortcut arrows have returned, even though Tweak UI says they shouldn't. What's the fix for this minor, but annoying problem?

Thank you, Rog, the problem turned out to be the Shell32.dll file. I replaced it using SFC and all is well again. The odd thing is when I visited the Win Update site as recently as two weeks ago, I was told there were no critical updates I needed. However, one of the downloads last night was the March 7, 2002 fix, which I am certain I downloaded in the past, resulting in the same problem with shortcut arrows. Mosaic1 helped me then and, fortunately, I saved a copy of the Shell32.dll file for future need. But I am wondering why I didn't need this download two weeks ago and did last night.

Glad to get you pointed in the right direction. I do find that sometimes previously installed patches get "damaged" and occasionally have to be reloaded. Probably just a fluke. Also they sometimes raise the level on these patches as new information becomes available.
