On my desktop I have a few shortcuts that have the UAC Shield on them. I assume this means that you must have administrative privileges to run it (correct me if I'm wrong). If it's important for any reason, I am the administrator. How can I get rid of that pesky icon?

Hello, what were you doing before this occurred,removing malware?
What is your Operating Sustem?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I run windows 7 64-bit. I first noticed it on a vintage-ish game (it was made for windows 98)...whenever i play it, uac asks me if i want to allow it to change my hard drive. I know the game is legitimate and i know that there isn't any malware on my system...the uac shield is also on my malewarebytes and TFC shortcut s. I recently installed malewarebytes and TFC while receiving help from a member of this site's Maleware Response Team (i just wanted to make sure my machine wasn't infected...it wasn't)

Hi, I do not think it malware but perhaps a system file changed. I will contact RPMcMurphy and ask him to review your changes.

Ok. Thanks. If I recall correctly, RPMcMurphy is the user who helped me with verifying that my computer was clean.

@RPMcMurphy, thanks again. You made the process absolutely painless!
