    I have had a small icon in my task tray that shows up-traffic and down-traffic from the internet. Somehow, it has disappeared. How do I restore it? (I knew how once, but have forgotten how.)

    octogenarian, Start>Control Panel then open "Network Connections". Right click your connection, choose "Properties" and under the "General" tab checkmark "Show icon in notification area when connected", click OK. If it's already checkmarked uncheck it click OK then checkmark it and click OK.
