Administrator Icon Not Showing Properly?

Hey Guys! I'm new to the forum (=

I Have a little problem with some icons not showing propably! here is an example!

So this is in Swedish im sorry but it's a picture inside the System windows where u can see your Operative System & CPU, RAM and stuff like that. This is a pic of how it should look (all of you people probably already know how it should look :P )

This is nothing serious but it can get really annoying sometimes and i really wants to know how to fix it :) so if anyone has a solution to this it would be much appreatiated!(correct spelling if you want!) unfortunately i do not remember when or how it started etc. what i was doing when it started.

Thank you =)!

Hello Tim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This would be the UAC shield icon to let you know that you will be prompted by UAC if the item is opened.

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

If not, then see if setting UAC to "Never notify", apply, restart, then set UAC back to default settings, and restart may toggle the icon back.
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
If still not, then run a sfc /scannow command.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

If you ran SFC a few times with a restart after each time and it still didn't help, then you might consider a repair install to fix it without losing anything.
