Red Circles Exclamation Points Desktop Icons

Is there a way to remove these? Should I restore my computer system or is thi something I can correct in McAfee preferences/settings?

Yeah its MOBK. I have experienced this on my Win 7 machine with MTP installed. It happens when a scheduled backup fails due to network disconnection and computer shut down before backup. Removing the files from MOBK configuration window will help remove the red exclamation.

In my case I've selected the files on desktop to be backed up and as a result all the program shortcuts on Desktop got red X. When I unchecked desktop in MOBK config window red X gone..!
