    hello guys, i hope i'll find a solution here because im not willing to format my C:\ ( I don't feel like it and it's not a big problem and im sick living with it smile.gif )..

    When i connect to the internet, The Icon of the two small computers does not go to my Task bar ( near the tasks eg: msn messenger ), until i go to My Network Connections, Right click and press Refresh... i mean it does'nt go automaticaly, same as my network connection when its aquiring the ip, it stays there in my tray until i refresh my Network connections, Anybody knows a workaround ? I don't have any idea why that happened, i don't remember missing with anything ;/

    windows xp sp2 pro

    Many thanks in advance

    To get the icon to show in taskbar, go to Settings- Netword connections -Properties- put a check in "Show icon in notification area when connected", ok out and it should work.

    u got my problem wrong, i said it only shows in the trya if i refresh My Network Connections ( If what you're talking about is not checked, the connection would'nt even get in the tray even if i refreshed ) , everything was fine, it worked perfectly since i installed the windows, and since 3 days i dont know what happened ;/
