I have Windows 7 Pro SP1. First answer deals with Windows 8, the second doesn't answer how to remove it. I don't have this symbol show up on my other Windows 7 machines.

"I have Windows 7 Pro SP1. First answer deals with Windows 8"

Actaully reading the URL aadih has provided....

It states this is a Feature of Internet Explorer 10.

So question would be, Do your windows 7 Machines have IE10?

If they do follow the instructions provided above

Yep, thanks Apache09. I did set up .REG file and send it to my user. I tried it on a computer that didn't have this eye, but running the file gave me an error. Since I don't the issue on this machine, I didn't investigate much further. Still waiting for the user to respond if it worked. But you know how users usually are - they got it fixed and never give you feedback. Thanks again.
