Windows "Security Shield" on desktop icons - how to remove!?

Posted: 01-28-2009, 07:11 PM
Hello everyone,
I am new here & also to Vista & I need a bit of help please!!

I have bought 2 new PCs & an NAS unit to run my businesses Sage accounts
program on one computer Windows (Vista Business) has appended a Windows
"Security Shield" to the Sage desktop icon.
This means that needs Sage needs UAC approval to run, despite the "Run as
Administrator" in the Sage Icon's Properties/Shortcut/Advanced menu box being
un-checked. It is also giving Sage problems accessing it’s data which is
stored remotely.
It would appear that Vista classifies programs and gives some of them a
shield & not others, but why has it given Sage a shield on one computer, but
not the other & how do I overide that classification?
Thanks,
Martin.

Have you asked the vendor of Sage?

Hi Sam,
thanks for your response, yes I have spoken with Sage who have told me a
work around - use a UNC network address instead of a mapped network drive
i.e. \\Server\Accounts intead of S:. This works OK, but I want to know what
is the difference between the 2 machines, something must be set differently!??
