Hello Healess, and welcome to Seven Forums.
There's really nothing to fix. The lock icon is just an indicator that the file/folder is shared with nobody. That's all.
If you wanted to share the file/folder with the network, then you could set it's share settings to share with who you like. This would then remove the lock icon since it's shared now.
If you didn't want to share the files/folders, then you could use the tutorial to hide the locks to not see them without affecting the share settings.
Hope this helps,
