hotspot shield

I download the hotspot shield and did not like it. So, uninstall it, but now my network icon shows x although connecting to network. Any ideas what to do here. I search google on this no help so far. Although, still searching.

Are you using System restore? Have you tried restoring to a Restore point before you installed the software?

Sorry, I did not mean "uninstall it", I meant to use the Windows 7 System Restore feature to put your PC back to the way it was before you installed the software...

Take a look at this tutorial... System Restore

This might help you to get things back the way they were.

If I do, I have customize themes set. Will it mess it up on my windows 7?

System restore does not generally impact personal files. Only windows files, drivers, registry settings and things like that. When you select a restore point you can scan for affected programs which will show you what will be changed by the system restore.

However, it is always a good idea to back up your personal files and data in addition to using system restore.

If you installed your themes AFTER installing the hotspot shield, and/or after the last restore point was created, then I'd recommend you back up your themes before using system restore.

If you have had your themes in place for a while (before the restore point, or before installing hotspot shield), then you'll be ok.

For example, if you installed hotspot shield on October 10th, then you would be looking for a restore point from the 9th of October or before.
