Windows Shield on an Icon

When there's Windows shield on an icon, is that Windows way of giving a thumbs up, or Windows ways of saying "Ehhh, I'm  not too sure about that."?

If you're talking about Vista or Windows 7, the blue/yellow Windows shield superimposed on an icon usually means that the application will launch and run as the administrator, and will require you to authorize it to do so with a User Account Control (UAC) popup.
