Windows 7: Ok - I'm stumped

Ok - I'm stumped

After installing a new program - Revo Unistaller, and un/reinstalling Yahoo Mssngr, and Google Earth - I have had what appears to be the Win7 security sheild, I'm guessing (it's blue/gold or yelloe) attached to the icons.

I was thinking it was probably a compatability issue, or maybe a security isse - but nothing turns up that way - so what gives? I should also not e- it started to happen about a month ago.

Thanx for the assist!

Hello Charles,

This is normal. The shield overlay on a icon is just to indicate that the program will run elevated (run as administrator) when you run it, and will give you a UAC prompt (if enabled) for you to allow or deny it to run elevated first.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
