Wireless Notification Icon Disappeared


I have a problem with windows 7. It is a new laptop. After downloading the latest driver from toshiba, the wireless icon disappeared completely and was replaced with the hardwire icon with a red x through it. I tried 'customize' but there are no wireless icons to select. Is it a case that the hardwire icon for internet connection is at default now? How do i default it to the wireless icon, if this is the problem? I tried system restore and that didn't work either. I tried updating the drivers in the device manager and that didn't work either. I have wireless connection to the internet, no problems with that, but missing the icon, any ideas?

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

Printer Icon Disappeared

I recently did a reinstall of windows 7 (64-bit) to deal with printer installation problems. In general, the result has been satisfactory. A canon usb printer installed automatically to a usb port. A hp laserjet 5 has been installed as the default printer on lpt1. However, the icon for the laserjet, which appeared when i installed the printer, has now disappeared; the printer still functions as the default, but i can't directly examine its property sheet.

Opening the property sheet for the canon printer and looking at the allocation of ports, i can see that lpt1 is assigned both to the laserjet and to a "quicken pdf printer. " I haven't installed any pdf printer hardware, although i have installed the quicken program. Possibly, the solution is to shift the laserjet to lpt2, but i can't see how to do that.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Automatic Update Notification Of Old Updates

I reinstalled xp professional and office 2003, then retrieved what i thought was all the updates. My system shows that i have sp3 for both. I received an automatic update notice this week that included approx. 26 updates for office 2003, office 2007 related to compatibility and others. When i go to the link for many of them, they have a publish date in 2008. Ironically i did the reinstall in december of 2009.

I don't appear to have these fixes/updates when i look at add/remove programs but my question is why am i just now getting these updates.

System Icons In Notification Area

I have 1 system icon, "power", that is not showing in the notification area. When i go to "customize notification area" and click "turn system icons on or off", the"power" icon is off and grayed out. I searched and found others reporting the same problem and did the posted "accepted solution" which was located here:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/945011. I first did it step my step manually and when that did not fix it i rebooted and ran the automatic "fixit" which also did not work. Anyone have a fix for this?

System Event Notification Service Message

For the last 3 weeks when i turn my laptop on i get the message "windows could not connect to the system event notification service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the system event log for details about why the service didn't respond. " The message disappears once i start using the laptop.

This message started appearing after a windows update, but it is not possible to do a system restore to undue that update any more. I don't have any other user accounts and i am running windows 7. As suggested by a moderator on this site, i opened cmd as an administrator, typed "netsh winsock reset" in the command prompt shell and, after it was accepted, re-started the computer. However, the message still appears. Does anybody have any other advice to get rid of this annoying message?

Error - Notification Dll Is Not Available, Program Will Not Work Correctly

I receive this error when i start up windows 7: "notification dll is not available, program will not work correctly" the title of the error window references wireless issue (which dell confirmed). My wireless works okay, but dell was unable do anything about the error. Uninstalling and reinstalling wireless drivers did not help.

Files And Folders Disappeared

I was organizing a file that i had hundreds of mods for a game. Everything was organized and orderly. All zipped and placed. So now i clicked on the file that had the version number 1. 4 i had all the files under. I selected properties, hidden, read only was already checked and then i selected apply ( i thought that this would show all hidden files). Then i clicked apply.

The computer went through all of those files as the green line smoothly showed the progress of the computer and they all disappeared. Gone just like that. I tried to go back , i tried to restore previous version of the file, but there are no more mod files they are all gone. Please tell me that they were not deleted. They were not in the recycle bin. In in some archive and can be restored?

Folder And Content Disappeared

I went to print out some pictures this morning to find that the entire group of subfolders and their content are gone. (Think of it as a tree starting with /public pictures/2010/feb/dateofpix/allpix.jpg - the dateofpix/allpix.jpg are gone leaving just the 2010/feb folders (empty).

I looked at the history of the feb folder and it says it was last modified last night at 9:50pm. We certainly didn't modify it since we were snoozing away at that time. I was able to restore back to 2/25 but that wasn't the last day we added photos to this folder (sat the 27th was and we've printed some of those so i know they were there).

What could cause folders & contents to disappear and how can i prevent this from happening in the future? I don't want to lose pictures. We do backups (bi-weekly and monthly) but not daily.

Hdmi Sound Out Disappeared

I'm running windows 7 ultimate on an hp 8710p laptop, and i have it connected via an hdmi cable to my hdtv. I was running vista before with no problems, and after i upgraded to windows 7, it still worked perfectly. I used to have to open the sound window from control panel after i plugged the laptop into the tv, i had two playback devices: speakers and digital audio (s/pdif), you would have to right click on digital audio and set it to the default device and then i would have sound on the tv, and off course i would have to change the setting again after i unplugged it from the tv.
Yesterday after i plugged it back into the tv, there was no sound. Steps i have taken to troubleshoot:

1. Plugged other hdmi devices into the tv to see if they got sound.
2. Plugged the laptop into other hdmi tv's to see if i could get sound there.
3. Downloaded the drivers from the hp website for both the graphics card and the sound card, and reinstalled them.
4. Ran a windows update to see if there isn't maybe a patch.
5. Ran the playing audio troubleshooter
6. Checked in device manager that all devices are working properly and not disabled
7. Updated the drivers in device manager (they just said that the latest drivers are installed)
8. Checked services to ensure that all services that has anything to do with audio or video are running
9. Checked the volume mixer to ensure that the volume is turned up and not muted
10. Uninstalled the graphics and sound cards, rebooted, reinstalled them, rebooted, etc.
11. Rebooted
12. Trust me, i've tried it all.

I see hundreds of postings everywhere, mostly dealing with guys that have upgraded from vista to windows 7, and then losing sound. Mine was working on windows 7, so i know that there is some hidden setting somewhere that we are not aware of, i've already spent a couple of hours reading hundreds of posts everywhere, but the troubleshooting they talk about, i've tried it all, but to no avail.

Network Display Disappeared

I just setup 5 new computers running 7 pro 1. 5 weeks ago. On setup, i clicked on the work network, and a great peer-to-peer network existed. This morning, for no apparent reason, the computers disappeared from the network display. The computers are all still connected, as i had created shortcuts to the shared folders in my libraries, and i can access all of them through those shortcuts. I can also access all of them by typing in the path. I can also map network drives.

Strangely, in the network display, i can see the display for media devices of anyone running windows media player. When i go to the network and sharing center and click on the see full map link, all of the computers are shown.

I have made sure that all of the settings are correct (although they all worked yesterday and no updates ran overnight) for normal networking. I am just using windows firewall, and i have tried temporarily turning it off on a couple computers at once. It did not solve the problem. I mapped a network drive to another computer. The mapping worked, but there are still no computers displayed in the network screen.

Network Shortcut Disappeared

I'm a system administrator for a small-medium company. We are moving to windows 7, because i think it's faster and reliable than xp. But we have a little problem: all the client that are using a new windows seven pc , complain about the same little (but annoying) problem: some times (generally after reboot, but not ever) all "network shortcut" disappear from desktop without any reason.

With the word "network shortcut" i mean: link to remote folder (folder on a network file server), link to network computer, or link for my own connections (like vpn connection to my company). An yway only link to network resources are affected by this problem, [desktop icon, internal link, ore file icons, are not affected by this problem].

Ms Research Tool Has Disappeared

Ms research tool has disappeared. I click the research button when i have internet explorer open up and it just goes to an empty toolbar(empty left side pane)with a cross at the top right of the toolbar. I go to manage add-ons and research says this under.

File: not available

Folder: not available. I have internet explorer 8 by the way but that's not relevant because i've uninstalled this and tried reserach under ie7 and hasn't worked, install ie8 again and it doesn't work. My guess is the reserach tool is either missing or corrupt. How do i fix this? I want my research tool back.
