    OK, all installed and doing great:) I do have one item that I have not figured out yet, so maybe some help? My Internet icon is showing a yellow exclamation and says we are not connected to the internet; but here I am. Out of all the updates and restarts only once did it not have the exclamation showing. Any ideas?

    Perhaps try unplugging the cable for a few moments or disconnecting in the network and sharing center... Clearly this only serves as an annoyance but I also would hate to see it

    If you have a wireless adapter and it is enabled and switched on try switching it off or disabling it, as the warning may refer to the Wi-Fi instead of the ethernet.

    If it is a bogus warning it is not the first time it has appeared for people. Still no idea why it displays nor how to get rid of it. Sometimes it disappears on its own.
