This SBI command is outdated and will probably not be supported in Spybot-S&D 2.0.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 the quick launch icons for one linking to the given filename.


QuickLaunchIconByLink:<link contents>,<(boolean)partial>[,advanced file parameters]



This example searches for quick launch icons pointing to any spyware.exe. This example searches for any desktop icon pointing to any spyware.exe. Scanned are both .lnk and .url files.


  1. The first parameter is used to identify the link target filename, either complete or partial (see second parameter). AP PT
  2. If you specify 11 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.
  3. 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 <$QUICKLAUNCH> or <$COMMONQUICKLAUNCH> 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).
