Can you take a screenshot of the icons? I tried replicating, but didnít have any luck.
Basically, to pin an icon to the taskbar, all you have to do is drag and drop it there.
The shield denotes that they take administrator rights to run.
Also, for some of your other questions, Iíd suggest checking out this Gizmodo piece on Windows 7. It has a lot of great info.http://gizmodo.com/5150298/windows-7-the-c...de-now-with-rc1
