Strange Symbol as appeared after logging in

Hi all,

 

I am just after a little help on my Windows PC.

 

I logged on this afternoon and found that all my desktop icons have a Grey Circle with a Green one inside it on them.

 

Can anyone tell me where this came from please?

 

I have not installed anything apart from windows update.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.  Picture attached.

Looks like some kind of encryption program, have you checked the machine for viruses/malware/ransomware?

Do you have Carbonite installed?

Looks like an icon overlay possibly from Bitdefender Safebox. Do you have that installed?

I have safe box installed but i have had in installed for ages and never seen this before.  I will admit I thought it looked very bit defender ish.  I could uninstall it and see what happens what do you think ?

Green dots that you reported in your post belongs to Bitdefender Safebox.

Somehow you managed to sync your desktop with Safebox( Right click on desktop<choose add to Safebox).

In the future, in such situations, go to "My Bitdefender" <Safebox and then delete all data that can there be found.

At the end restart your Computer.

Green dots indicate the synchronization with Safebox
