In windows 7, jaikoz and songkong do not install just 1 instance of run and uninstall shortcuts, but multiple ones. I decided to take a look at it and see where they were being added.

Both songkong and jaikoz throw shortcuts in multiple folders. Jaikoz for example toss them here:


C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Jaikoz (64-bit)
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Jaikoz Uninstall (64-bit)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Jaikoz (64-bit)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Jaikoz Uninstall (64-bit)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jaikoz Music Tagger (64-bit)\Jaikoz (64-bit)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jaikoz Music Tagger (64-bit)\Jaikoz Uninstall (64-bit)

I also noticed that the uninstaller does not always remove all of these, and that occasionally doing an update of the software will put in multiple instances of the shortcuts.

Could both jaikoz and songkong only place the shortcuts in the programs folder? So for jaikoz only in this one?

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jaikoz Music Tagger (64-bit)\Jaikoz (64-bit)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jaikoz Music Tagger (64-bit)\Jaikoz Uninstall (64-bit)

That will help keep things a lot cleaner.
