Hello,

I had an issue today that started with no internet connection.  I am wired through cable and was unable to connect all day.  Multiple restarts and reset of router.  Restarted computer and now have connection however I have these yellow triangles with exclamation marks on all my desktop icons.  All seems to work well however I cannot rid these symbols.  I am running another Malware Bytes prem. scan however previous today did not find anything.  I have no flags or warnings in tray in regards to this.

I am finding all kinds of information however nothing exact on this issue.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks very much.

UPDATE- lost connection again, all icons went to a green circle with a check mark in center.  I have never seen these symbols previously on the desktop icons.  I again now have connection.  

Not sure what this is.

The yellow triangle on the icons means the program is set to run as administration on the compatibility mode tab.

Hello Allan,

Thank you for the info.  I guess all is ok.  What would cause this to all of the sudden show up?
