    I still have dial up only because thats all that is available. Anyway - I recently unpluged my modem and when I pluged everything back in it would not connect. So after fooling around a little bit I established a new connection. But I still have an icon on the lower right hand corner with an icon with a red x on it. I can get a connection but just can't get rid of the icon. I want to know how to get rid of it and if I did anything wrong. If you need more information just ask - I'm running windows 2000. Thanks so much, I appreciate it very much.

    Goto Control Panel/Network Connections.If this should shows two Dial-up connections, right click on the one no longer used and select delete or disable. That should clear the icon for the unused connection.

    Next question...... Where's the icon for the connection you are using?

    I tried that and it said that it was unable to delete the entry. Well actaully there wasn't even a delete option but I tried to move it to the recycle bin and thats when it said unable. Your second question I don't understand. That may be cause I'm unaware of any icon. There was never one on the bottom right hand corner before. If any other suggestions or help me understand about your second question just let me know. Thanks
