If you are a user of Mozy Backup and also have Microsoft Word on your system, you may have noticed that some of your saved documents have either a green check mark or red exclamation on the documents icon. I had this problem and could not find a solution. But I finally read a post in a forum which stated the offender is Mozy Backup.

If you use Mozy Backup go into options, and check ‘Disable icon overlays in Windows Explorer.’ After a reboot the markings should disappear.

Comments welcome.
