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.

You should try starting up in safe mode with networking, if the problem goes away then you know if the problem is caused by a program or not.

safe was the same. running out of options here i think. I had downladed Winkleaner pro but not run it yet as i wanted to try a check things out first. The program does hav network troubleshooter but i a was afraid it might make some changes in reg that might not be recoverable, but at this point i hav little choice. I can try to do a reg back up first, then i'll let do his thing.
