I've been using SpywareBlaster for quite a long time on my Vista. However, recently I've noticed that the SpywareBlaster icon is not showing on my desktop. The only thing there now is a white box.
I tried to change icon from properties, but it does not change back to the original SWB icon.
How can I get the icon back?

Delete the icon and try creating a new shortcut.

There are several ways to create shortcuts:
