Windows 7: Network Icon lies!

05 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Network Icon lies!

I did some searching and found 1 other post where a user seemed to of had the same issue as me. The network icon shows the computer screen with the red X on it, but he was on the network. Restarting the system seemed to have fixed his issue, but I have restarted a dozen times, and it is stilll showing the red X on my system. Everything else is just fine...I can ping every web site, access other computers on my network, etc. Please see attached picture.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions or help in resolving this issue.
