My sister plays Minecraft using her user account on the family Windows XP computer, and sometimes another computer (Win7). The client she uses is from here. The installer is very weird for several reasons:
- Does not register itself in the list of installed programs
- Places the program shortcut, without asking, on the Windows Desktop of all users. (Actually I haven't yet checked if it's in the All Users directory or in the separate directories.)
This second one is very annoying. In addition, each time the game is run, it re-inserts the shortcut icon, if it was deleted in the meantime, again on all users' desktops.
How can I stop that program from spamming my desktop?
