|This SBI command is outdated and will probably not be supported in Spybot-S&D 2.0. As of yet, it is unclear whether an automated conversion path exists. Automated conversion paths may also be less sufficient than a manual upgrade. We recommend that you take a look at File for a possible alternative command.|
Searches all desktop icons for one linking to the given filename.
DesktopIconByLink:<filename>,<(boolean)partial>[,advanced file parameters]
This example searches for any desktop icon pointing to any spyware.exe. Scanned are both .lnk and .url files.
- The first parameter is used to identify the link target filename, either complete or partial (see second parameter). AP PT
- If you specify 1 as the second parameter (aka true), the first needs to be a part of the full filename only. Specifying 0 means you'll be allowed to use Algo-Prefixes, the recommended way.
- As usual, you should specify advanced file parameters to avoid trouble resulting from ambiguous filenames. This can be done in the third parameter.
You might want to use File instead, using the <$DESKTOP> or <$COMMONDESKTOP> path templates, combined with the path template <$DESKTOP> and the advanced file parameter target[link], unless you depend on the link to find the actual file (in case it uses totally random names in totally random folders, for example).
- The link or URL file.
