Windows 7: My wifi icon is showing that I'm not connected, but I am.

My wifi icon is showing that I'm not connected, but I am.

Hi. So I wanted to use this Hama usb bluetooth on my pc. It had a driver disc that comes with BlueSoleil. As I installed it I've noticed that the wifi icon changed (gray with yellow star) like I wasn't connected to the internet. I deleted BlueSoleil thinking it would be fixed, but it didn't. Here is an image of what I'm talking about: sadadsads — ImgBB

I have internet access. I'm writing this from the pc.

ALSO I have noticed that some Network Connections are missing aswell. And also I noticed that my Adapters and Bindings tab is TOTALY broken. This is how it should look like: Screenshot-20200317-121455 — ImgBB (its an old image that I took with my phone months ago for a friend that needed some help around Hamachi) But now it looks like this: fddfsvfs — ImgBB There is nothing now!

What the hell happened here!? Can someone help me? I really don't know what to do.

You didn't quite understand me. The internet is working fine with no issue. Its the icon that is broken, few missing Network Connections (I cant access Hamachi's properties for example) and it messed up Adapters and Bingings tab.

I installed BlueSoleil because I wanted to see if my bluetooth headphones could connect to the pc. Without it the headphones didn't want to work because windows doesn't have bluetooth audio drivers. The driver disc that came with the usb bluetooth has them (BlueSoleil software and it's drivers). So I installed it and it installed all sorts of drivers for bluetooth (yes, even network ones). And of course the headphones for some reason didn't want to work and I gave up on that idea of trying to make them work when I saw the issues caused.
