Why does a little shield icon appear on my photoshop cs4 shortcut icon?

Question by 7Super7: Why does a little shield icon appear on my photoshop cs4 shortcut icon?
I have this portable version of photoshop cs4 and there is a little shield icon that appears in the bottom right corner of the shortcut icon. I dont know why it is there because before it wasnt there but now it is after reinstalling it becuase i accidentally deleted it. Why is it there and how can i remove the shield icon.

It has to do with you firewall/security settings in Windows. SO I would check your settings

What do all the little icon things on photoshop cs4 stand for?

Like on the side theres a band-aid, a paint brush, a water drop….
But what do they all mean.
And i mean ALL of them, not just the ones i mentioned.

i know what the regular paintbrush means, and the one you use to pick up a color thing.
Please and thank you! [:
The hover thing isnt working.
(i think its cuz mines like free bottleg version type of thing. haha)

i think thats why the f1 thing isnt working either.
