The shortcut is probably in the "all users" profile.  Go to \Documents and Settings\All Users\.  You didn't say where the shortcut was, but probably under Start Menu\Programs or if it is on the desktop remove it from te desktop.  Of course you will want to make sure that the shortcut is under the Administrators profile.  The root of all profiles is \Documents and Settings.

so it should be in both places, and if I remove it from the all users profile it will still be in the admin profile?

It is probably only in the All User's profile.  Check the administrator profile.  If it is not there, you can just do a cut and past from the All User's profile to the administrator's profile.
