Network List Service is missing from the list of services

Hey Guys,

I am having this problem where in the system tray the network icon is showing incorrect information. It displays a red "x" even though I am surfing the internet. When I hover over the icon it displays "Connection status:unknown The specified service does not exist as an installed service".

I stumbled upon this post and I noticed that I am completely missing Network List Service. How do I make this option visible in the list of services? Can I somehow install this service?

TIA.

Have you got an unused ethernet port that is enabled or wifi that is not being used?
I came across this problem with an older computer, where I would have an x on one of my connections but a fully functional internet service.
