    HP, win. 7, IE 9, 1 1/2 T. Every time I update windows, the network icon appears. Windows won't allow it to be removed.
    I usually restore to former day, but am tired of dealing with it. How does it come off the screen?

    Hi, do you have windows set to install updates automatically? Do the updates finish? Can you post a picture?

    Yes, yes, and I don't know.
    I'm kind of old and really should be doing other things. Just don't know much about this stuff.

    Wait, I changed the auto install to manual recently.

    Could you show a screen shot of the offending network icon, please? If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

    The icon is gone. It was 3 balls, blue and green. I fiddled with it last night, don't know what I did.
    Thanks for offering solutions.
