I may have this somewhat figured out. If you right click on documents for an example, properties, security tab then click advanced. Now under the permissions tab you will see administrators, system, everyone etc. they will have an inherited from entry. What I found was duplicate administrators, system and on and on, but under the inherited entry it will say not inherited. If you delete these. The shared icon goes away. The problem with this is, you have to do this with each folder....ouch! Need to find a way to do this in one fail swoop.

So it is permissions related! Outstanding. :cheesy:

Ok making a program to fix it will be easy.

Can you post a screen shot showing what you described for me?

I'm embarrassed to ask....how do you post a screen shot. I know I'm a little behind the times...lol. I don't even facebook or tweet (can't believe I just used that word). A quick tutorial would be great.

Open the window you want, then hold the right alt button then the prtsnc button. The right alt tells the prtscn to capture only that window and the the full screen.

Then open paint, go to edit then paste. Say it as a jpg and when posing you will see attach at the bottom :wink:

Here ya go. I made 4 for you. I actually found one I haven't fixed yet. That will be the fourth one. The question now is, was this always a problem that didn't show up until permissions were reset or does it have something to do with the way my system is set up.


uuuhhhhmmm!  I hope this helps you out Shane. By the way I'm sure I've told you before, but you have great programs and sure go out of your way to help people. I try to point people to you for problems they may have, (that could be good and bad).

Let me Know how it goes for the program.

Looks like it is a bug in your system.

The reset file permissions repair is what set the permissions the way you seen them. I just ran it on my system, rebooted and I have no sharing icons.

It seems that your windows when it sees permissions that are not inherited thinks the file/folder must be shared and puts the sharing icon on it. And you will notice every file on your system has these non inherited permissions now but it is ONLY the files/folders in your profile showing the icon. Very strange indeed!

Similar to this
http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/8729-how-remove-lock-icon-over-my-folder-2.html

So for now to remove those icons we just need to remove the non inherited permissions from your profile folder.

So we can do that easily. Go to the root of your profile folder. "C\Users\Chris"
Edit the advanced security on it. Remove the non inherited permissions and at the bottom put a check on the apply to all child objects. This will do it to every file under that folder. That should get these icons cleared up :-)

Let me know that works and I will sticky this for other users who have this bug.

I manually fixed most last night, but it looks like the fix you found works (at least it did for the rest). I wonder what is set differently in my machine to cause this?

I will change the title of this topic and sticky it for people who have the same problem :wink:

Do me a fav and verify that not other folders have the share icon on the system. Check that they have the permissions from the repair yet no share icon. I find it odd it only affect your profile folderdds and files and nothing else. Wonder if it has to do with something related to the profile itself?

But none of the main folders? Like program files, Windows or any of those?

No Problem. I'm sure I'll break something I'll need help with later. I just can't leave well enough alone.

One more way to fix this (at least in vista).
1. Go to network and sharing center.
2. At the bottom look for "Show me all the files and folders I am sharing" and click it.

   At this point your pc will compile the data and show all files and folders. Once this happens you....
3. Click to highlight a Folder or File.
4. Press Control and A (Highlights everything).
5. Right click over highlighted folders and files.
6. Look for Share in the menu and click it.
7. Click on stop sharing.

This gets rid of the sharing icon.

If your sharing folders and files, this might not help. But if you don't share anything like me, it should work fine.


Shane sorry I'm late on this :omg:. I meant to post it earlier :wink:
