this is a easier way to fix it just use the search . goto the start button and type in Godmode. or what ever you named it hit search then delete works tested on 3 pc just 2 see hope this will work for u and others
God Mode is simply a folder that contains links to all the systems administrative tools. The folder itself does not change anything so it should be just a matter of finding that folder and deleting it. If you have used any of the tools exposed in God Mode, then you need to restore those settings individually or collectively using System Restore.
To remove the folder: The shortcut doesn't help as you are right, you don't want to remove explorer.exe (don't get me started, but that's a different thread!). Click on Start, and enter "God Mode" without the quotes in the search box, hopefully that will find the folder for you and assuming you haven't tweaked your system too far you can just remove the folder.
God Mode is not really a mode at all. In fact there is nothing really to uninstall. Just ignore the shortcut or folder; it's merely a distraction.
The implication however is that something has changed since setting up the folder. That being the case, the admin tools exposed by the user have been used to alter the behavior and/or appearance of Windows. If that is so, use System Restore to go back to a time before it was enabled unless the OP knows what it was that was changed and can go back manually through those individual changes.

If you're talking about the GodMode described earlier with a single string command entered, it's just deleting the shortcut that command created. It's not a program or other thing which installed....it's just a Windows administration command they don't really advertise. I first heard about this quite some time back while in PC Hardware and Networking courses.
The big thing is, if running that command is doing anything odd or other than opening the index to all the Windows configuration shortcut commands then I'd say there is a much bigger problem and you may consider MalwareBytes and a good virus program of your choice....all run in Windows Safe Mode.
I've heard of people doing real damage by using things GodMode makes available that otherwise aren't easy to get to and screw up, but it shouldn't be causing problems by merely being there. It doesn't do or add anything. It just gives an index to basically everything in Windows that does. (??)

Is it like rooting your phone?
Something like this wasnt necessary for windows 98 and below, it allowed you to pretty much do what you wanted/needed but MS decided to make the current windows idiot proof for XP and beyond, without 3rd party appz at least.
