reset was good but still same. i know it cant be the actuall script of the icon thats bad because as i said i have a program that wont launch because it also thinks i have no internet. when i right click on connection status icon it says no not connected to any network. This is just a hunch, but is it possible that win 7 is confused somehow with wired and lan? Although their is no wireless status showing and i have no wireless device on it, perhaps something in that sense? Because i just dont know how can win not detect network yet i am connected to internet and able to surf. If it wasnt for that program that cant launch because it doesnt detect my network, all of this would be fine with me.
