The general idea is good, but I don't think you should store these paths 
in the registry. Instead the daemon should ask for file change 
notifications for the relevant special folders (CSIDL_STARTMENU, etc) 
and act accordingly when a .lnk or .url file gets added / deleted 
somewhere in thes directories.
