    Ok...so they changed things with 1903. The imageres.dll(s) no longer has any icons in it. I did find where they put them though.

    C:\Windows\SystemResources\imageres.dll.mun

    So I used the same method as before(essentially) to remove the shield and arrow with Resource Hacker and IcoFX. And it worked! Yay!!!

    Thanks Mr Genius for the heads up....

    I have created a replacement file suitably tweaked to remove the shield overlay..... but no matter how I try with permissions I can't seem to gain control of the original file to rename it (imageres_original.dll.mun) for replacement with the tweaked version. I presume that this is because it remains in use by windows.

    I did consider accessing the system disk with another PC (as an additional drive) but this is an issue as the system (C:) drive is installed to an M.2 SSD (X99 Motherboard) my older machine does not have any M.2 facility...…

    Just wondering if you could outline the steps you took to replace the original file with your tweaked replacement.

    In case it helps the 1903 update is being run on Windows 10 Pro.

    Thanks

    I used your edited imagres.dll.mun, but it did not changed the icons, are you sure that is edited version?

    I used Winaero program to remove shortcut arrow, now I have to remove UAC shield.

    MrGenius did you have to take ownership of the entire C:\Windows\SystemResources\ folder in order to rename and replace the original imageres.dll.mun file? Like PC Pilot above I'd really appreciate it if you could please let us know the steps you took in order to replace the original file as I think some special permissions need to be setup in order to do this. Thanks in advance.

    @DigDeep I double checked and it is the edited version. Did you try rebuilding the icon cache afterwards? It's from 1903 Pro 64(not sure if that matters, probably not).

    @PC Pilot and @POOTERMAN I used Active @ Boot Disk to create a bootable USB flash drive with Win10 PE 64-bit. Booted with that and used the "Explore My Computer" utility to find the edited file. Then, using the same utility, copied and pasted it to C:\Windows\SystemResources. Choosing "yes" to replace the existing file. Then restarted my PC and booted 1903. Then rebuilt my icon cache. When done the arrows and all the shields were gone.

    If you've done it how I described...but the arrows and shields are still there...I have no idea why that would be. It works perfect for me. Maybe if you're running 1903 32-bit there's a different way that's setup. I don't think using the 64-bit file would cause any issues. But I can't say for sure(I have no way to verify it one way or the other). You can try locating the 32-bit imageres.dll.mun or imageres.dll and editing that version of the file(whichever contains the icons). If you need help with that you can upload/attach said file here and I'll gladly do it for you.

    Hint
    : Active @ Boot Disk version 14(newest) is a POS. I've had pretty much nothing but problems with it. The only way I've been able to get it to work properly is to install version 13 first, and then install it over that version. On its own it fails to create bootable USB flash drives(haven't tried other removable media). I've uploaded a copy of version 13 to my google drive. Which I suggest you use instead(LINK), or to install prior to version 14. Or try using another method to boot to a non-standard Windows environment(ie. PE) or Linux. It's not possible(AFAIK) to replace the file from another standard Windows installation(like booting from another disk/partition with Windows whatever on it). And I had no luck with the take ownership jazz. So I don't recommend that method.

    @MrGenius - Thank you so very much for not only replying but for the wonderfully comprehensive tutorial and link to the boot disk utility. With your help I easily managed to replace the imageres.dll.mun file using that boot image (which is also very useful) and I'm now 'administrator shield' free YAY! :) Again massive thanks for taking the time to put that little lot together for us and I'm extremely grateful for your time, help and kindness. Massive respect to you sir :)
