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.

Small blue icons on some desktop icons?
I think it may have something to do with permissions because I just changed a lot for my account, but here it is: On the desktop, apparently they only appear on programs or shortcuts, are small little blue emblem things pasted onto the original icons. They look like envelopes or something. Does...

Just curious to know in "about flags" there is an option "override software rendering" - enabling GPU rendering on unsupported system configuration. Just curious what exactly this does? Doesn't IE9 use GPU rendering on all pages as well by default? Thanks
