Remove a desktop shortcut Icon that will not delete

Hello Experts,

Well this should be fairly easy. I have a Icon on the desk top called "AVG 7.7" The avg program was updated to 8.0 and this Icon was left on the desktop. When I try to delete it I am informed that the Item refers to a location that does not exsit anymore.
So I'm guess that we should be able to remove it from a registry entry. but that's my guess and why I am asking.
I did some poking around but had no luck, so How do we get rid of it?

Thanks,
Mike R
