Weird Icons?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Went in to look through some hard drive stuff and noticed the icons were different. I'm pretty sure they didn't use to look sketchy.

Thanks guys!

Windows 7.

Oh, that can't be good. Look through your Programs and Features for anything unusual. Look through the Processes tab in Task Manager for anything unusual. I'd be pretty worried about some weird change like this.

Thanks for the responses.
It's about the green check mark and the bar above the icon.
I played around a bit and decided to nuke it with a fresh install. All was well during driver install but as I was downloading the normal stuff... real temp, cpuz, etc. I noticed the icons were back again mad.gif
So I started in safe mode just to see and sure enough it was gone rolleyes.gif
I'm going to try to back track a little tomorrow and see what I can find.
Thanks for the help!

I would say that this checkmark is provided by some kind of security software (maybe miscrosoft essentials) or by sync/backup soft (is your computer synced with SkyDrive or similar?).

see if you have some of those installed.

Yeah, I have to admit that this does look rather official to me - like it's being done by some popular program.

 

When you install programs, do you make sure to check for piggyback programs? What I mean is, do you always do the Custom or Advanced (or whatever it would be called) type of installation instead of the Standard, Express or Recommended one (or whatever it would be called)? That way, you get to see what else might get installed along with the program that you might  not want. For a quick example: the Google Toolbar.

 

Actually, can you show me a .PNG-formatted screenshot of your Programs & Features control panel? Switch the view to List and resize the window until you can see ALL of the programs. Then, press Alt+Print Screen to capture just the window. Then, save it as a .PNG in Microsoft Paint.

You get similar icons with programs that sync/backup files, SkyDrive/OneDrive or Dropbox for example.
