Windows 7: Blue Flags on video icons

Blue Flags on video icons

Hello,

Today these blue flags have appeared on the icons of all of my videos (I've never noticed them before), I was just wondering if anyone knows what they are? and if there's a way to get rid of them.

Thanks

Owain

I suspect it's an icon for a media player you've installed? I don't know which one.

Right click on a video/Properties and check what it opens with.

This should get rid of it, go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items and click Folder Options, View tab. Uncheck the items shown below, Apply/OK.

Which program is associated with MP4 files ?? You can check that here: Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations. The flags probably belong to that program.
