symbols obscuring thumbnail photos

  peter gr 11:36 07 Jan 2010

I have Windows 7. Some of the thumbnail photos in my files are overlaid with a green square with a white tick. Others, recently installed from an SD card, have a blue square with white chevrons. Can anybody explain what the symbols mean and how to get rid of them?

Will clearing the thumbnails via Disk Clean-up not delete the photographs along with the symbols?

If in doubt, simply create a System Restore Point first -but, as I understand it you are only deleting the Thumbnails, which will then be re-created automatically.
