Oh this is on Windows 7 64-bit with Adobe reader version 9.5.0
You are not addressing Adobe here, just fellow users; and there is nothing we can do to help you in this.
p.s. Please stop. Its very annoying!
I hope that they don't stop, but give users a choice in the matter.

Hi David Fooks,
I tried updating Adobe Reader 10.1 to 10.1.2 when Desktop shortcut was deleted and I didn't get desktop shortcut back.It seems to be fixed in Adobe Reader 10.1. You can download Reader 10.1 from below link
I hope this helps.
