    I've noticed that when I create a shortcut icon in Windows 7+ with IE9 installed, upon opening the link it changes it to a pinned site, drops my referral tag at the end, and changes it to
    Code:
    /?tag=amzn-ie9-jl-main-20
    I'm assuming I'm not getting a referral from that. I haven't had any luck googling any info about avoiding this. Anyone else know of a way to keep this from happening?
