I'm a tad half awake right now so bear with me.

To the original poster. Do you have any bridges going between connections? That tends to cause the icon on the taskbar to become messed up.

How can I be able to remove something that's already removed So, no this doesn't work, I did download it, but couldn't find anything that could've worked.

No, no bridges, [posted already]: If you go to Network Adapters, then go to Advanced, Advanced Settings, it should show the connections as well and give priority to each one, but there are none there.

Revo Uninstaller didn't work...
Nor did CCleaner.

Anyone else have any other options that I can try?

How about disabling the PAN adapter? I suspect it's still there. Start, type "view net con", enter. Right click and disable anything you are not using.

I tried that already, and it's not working, sadly.

It's still there.

Just did a System Restore, and that did the trick, never relied on SR, so I didn't think of it that fast, but yeah, it's up and working again.

Thanks for all the help
