    red X in computer icon


    so i started having this problem the other day. the computer icon in the
    lower right corner now has a red X in it where as before it would let me
    know that i had a wireless connection to my internet. weird thing is is
    that i still have my connection. it just doesnt tell me that i am
    connected like it did before and to check my connection i must right
    click on it rather than just hover the pointer over it. anyone have any
    ideas as to why this has happened and how to put it back like it was?

    To whom are you talking and about what?
    The "forum" that you are posting in leaches off the Microsoft News
    servers in order to make it look far busier than it really is. Everyone
    who uses the MS News servers sees your post on it's own - we have NO
    IDEA what you are talking about and to whom you are talking.

    If you MUST continue to post in this "forum" then please at least quote
    the post you are replying to, and do NOT change the subject line.

    You would be far better off however, using a news reader and subscribing
    to these news groups direct.
