Windows 7: Network Icon at taskbar acting strange

29 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Network Icon at taskbar acting strange

i've just set up my colleague's email client (MS Office Outlook 2007) and it was downloading emails form both her different email accounts using wireless hotspot connection. But about 2 hours later, when she decided to disconnect the wireless connection and change to dial-up, nothing shows up when she clicked the network icon in the taskbar. right-clicking it shows only troubleshoot AND Network and Sharing Center options. the usual pop-up menu which lists or wireless connections including dial-up doesn't appear at all.

what could have caused this and how do I fix it please?

I've already told her to check the icon's behavior after rebooting and to let me know anything.

Please advice asap as I am kinda responsible for this issue.

Infinite thanks and God Bless,
