Red Cross On Network Icon


I have a red cross on my network toolbar icon (win7 7600)i went through whole internet, mostly tried everything tried this http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7network/thread/c3ee2c3f-82e5-44c7-8f40-ee7fb7f48c83also disabling/enabling bonjour services. I can only say the icon works only fine when computer starts without internet, i unplug cable, start pc, wait 2 minutes and plug internet cable back, and it works, until restart. Disabling adapters and enabling does not help. Don't know what it is. Maybe some service failed to start. I also think it can be kaspersky internet security 2010, because it controls network adapters, but im not sure.

Taskbar Network Icon Activity Animation

When will there be an animated network icon in windows 7 like in xp ? This is very important to many folks to know when there is network activity. The icon in win7 does not animate so users have no idea whether there is network activity. This is the first thing that real users look at when they suspect their internet connection has dropped - long before windows detects it.

I have seen a red x on the current icon if i lose internet access, but i liked the two-way animation for security purposes. I want to know if information is going out or coming in without my initiating it. I think the animation icon was a security feature.granted, the animation was not real precise, but it helped.

For example, the animated icon helped me to discover and pinpoint the print server service that was sending usage data back to the print mfr "mother ship" whenever i printed something. Also, my internet connection gets dropped a bit too often and i unfortunately need to reset the router from time to time. The animation icon gave me a good progress indicator too on reinitialization. And properties on it showed me sent/received packets to really know how things were going if i was in doubt.

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?

The pc recognizes tv as sony pnp generic monitor and setup resolution to 1920 x 1080 and frequency to 60hz. Everything just look fine until i got kind of red picture on tv screen. This red/pinky picture appears and disappears randomly.

Usually, i switch tv with remote to another hdmi and return to hdmi where is pc connected to and picture returns to normal, with normal colors. Also i checked generic pnp monitor and ati radeon hd5700 properties and under drivers for monitor i found c:windowssystem32driversmonitor.sys. Should not be driver for 64bit system? I checked problem code for monitor and reports to me "00000000". Any solution to this problem? Please help me this reddish/pinky/neon green picture frustrates me.

Cannot Find An Icon

I deleted the icon for ie8 on the start menu and the desktop, not knowing it would cause me not to be able to open it. It seems i've tried everything - i've searched the start menu and i've turned ie8 on and on in the 'turn windows features on or off' section of the control panel. I've also recently checked the program files for it, but the closest thing i can find is a file named iexplorer.exe. Mui , and whenever i try to open it, a window comes up saying it cannot be found.
How can i get ie8 back?

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.

How To Enable Power Icon?

When i installed windows 7 last weekend, there was a power icon in the system tray that i unintentionally disabled. How do i get it back? There is no entry for power when i click customize on the systray so i can't enable it through the ui. I also looked in the registry to verify that the icon was not disabled there.
 
The ups shows up in the device manager and powercfg correctly identifies it (apc es550). The battery is obviously working because i can unplug the ups and the machine continues to work. It would be nice though, to be able to see the battery status.

I've read a number of messages from people complaining about the power icon but i'd be happy just to see it. What's the secret here?

Taskbar Icon Preview Problems

I've got a problem with the w7 taskbar and i will try to explain it with an example. Let's say i have two folders open, a couple of docs, and 3-4 websites. Now if i do not remember which websites i have opened, i might just point the arrow to the internet explorer icon to see a preview. At that point the thumbnails should appear and stay fixed until i move somewhere else. In my case the preview lats for less than one second, they then disappear.

If i try again the preview will give the same result, just a short flash. As far as i know, as i have more that one pc with w7, when the arrow is on the icon, the aero preview should remain fixed, so i'll have time to decide which window i want to open and which i want to close. Unfortunately, now i cannot do that as the short flash/preview doesn't give me time to do anything, not even to understand what i have opened.
That of course does happen with all the icon in the taskbar.
I tried the troubleshooter, but without any success. Have you got any other solution in mind?
Many thanks for your help.

How To Create Desktop Icon In Taskbar?

Since i use my computer for graphical production, i have most aero turned off so to not leak colors through to work area. On my xp laptop, there is a desktop icon that i can click to minimize all open windows together. This is very handy when i want to use something that is an icon on my desktop but does not warrant getting added to the task bar. How do i create this icon. I do not want the version that arrives by right clicking the windows explorer icon, i just want the actual desktop to come forward.

I accidentally unpinned outlook from my taskbar and now i cannot get it back. I found the following suggestion but it does not work. Please help. Attempting to pin an installer to the taskbar may fail and leave a broken pinned item that doesn't show up on the taskbar.

When moving an item from left to right, the item will end up one or more positions to the left of where you intended to move it. You can work around this by moving items from right to left to achieve the desired order. You can also fix the issue by removing any broken pinned items with the steps under using the following steps:

1. Browse to the following folder in your user folder under c:users

Appdatamicrosoftinternet explorerquick launchuser pinnedtaskbar. Note that "user pinned" is a hidden folder.

2. Delete any shortcuts in this directory that aren't represented on the taskbar.

3. Click start

4. In the search programs and files box, type regedit

5. In the programs list, click regedit.exe

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or click continue.

Compressed File Opening And Icon

I  changed the default program used to open  compressed zip files  (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Lso able to change to any programme icon from the open with command , - so zip files have changed , not opening correctly and all  attachments have changed to fit the icon programme. So the compressed zip files now can appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the compressed zip icon and functionality?

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

Desktop Icon Links Disappear

Because the desktop keeps losing my links, i have created a folder on my usb hard disk that contains my desktop links, so i can refresh them faster once they go missing (copy them to my desktop). Many times i come to the machine and the icons that point to objects on my usb hd are missing. The other icons are fine. It appears that the usb hd goes to sleep, some process refreshes the desktop, the desktop link target seems to be missing, the links are removed.

1.could this be what is happening?
2. Is there a fix.
3. Any reason why it does it saturday night. Every sunday morning halve of the desktop links are gone.

Cannot Change Desktop Shortcut Icon

I've got an application shortcut on my desktop which leads to a dos based executable. The icon is apparently generic windows 7. I've tried to change it several times to one of the icons in shell32.dll. No luck, the apply button remains greyed out, even though for all intense and purposes the shortcut itself recognizes the icon as it is depicted in the upper left hand corner of properties. If i change any of the other settings and apply the icon it is still not transferred. This is only true of this "dos" based app.

No Safely Remove Hardware Icon

I do not have icon in notify area to safely remove hardware on this and any other flash drives. I have already always show all icons in notify area option enabled.

My best find is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937454 but it not applicable to my win7 x64 system.

System restore to previous point does not help.

Right click on usb flash drive in explorer does show eject menu item, it triggers safe to remove message box, but drive still accessible.

More interesting - only one specific usb port is affected. Same flash drive inserted to next usb port trigger safely remove hardware icon and it work fine.

Shortcuts Show Blank Icon

I have windows 7 home, 32-bit installed for quite a while. Yesterday i installed the microsoft online services single log-n. Now i don't know if this is a coincidence - i did try uninstalling it and the problem was still there. All shortcuts are showing the blank, white default. No matter where they are: desktop, task bar, start menu. I have tried everything i can find:

1) deleting the iconcache. Db, there are several methods and i tried them all.

2) using tweak programs that supposedly reset the icons3) resetting my background, monitor resolution, and icon size.

4) trying to recreate the icons by dragging them to the desktop and create a new icon.

5) clicking on the icon, properties and change the icon nothing works. The icons are blank in safe mode and when i log-on as another user. It is really bad when i have a lot of programs running and they are all blank on the task bar!

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?
