Right click on it and a box opens up

Select the Rename near the bottom and put your girl friends name or other obscure wording for the pointer.

I was going to provide a pic of my firefox renamed My Freefox but I could not get my snagit to work ..... Ahh well...

Mark the icon, press F2, enter new name.

F2 is the standard Windows 'Rename' button and works e.g. with files too.

If the program shortcuts are changing names by themselves, you could have malware/spyware on your computer. Double check any recently installs for any third party programs that might have slipped thru like browser search bars, downloaders, etc.

Also next time you install any program always do a custom/advanced install. You won't have to change anything as it's all set on default options but when you hit any option asking to install a third party program untick or reject the offer

The names for shortcuts don't change themself, it only happens when you do it or you install the same program without deleting the old one first.

A simple click on it any you can change it, same for a right click and selecting rename - check the Windows help for the basic use of Windows ;)

Sorry but it's not clear what your problem is. Can you try to articulate it a bit better?
