That means that your network adapter is acquiring a connection. I get that when I first power up.

Love the avatar icon! Anyway, if SFC/ SCANNOW fixes the problem, it sounds like a necessary Windows component or NIC driver is having an issue. Try updating or reinstalling the latest NIC drivers.

Solved this problem

Had this problem develop maybe three weeks ago....not sure how or why....

After not much helpful searching.....found an item that suggested the windows clean boot drill....

Went to MSCONFIG.....SERVICES Tab.....Hide all MS Services.....

Went thru one at a time and unchecked each service and rebooted..... After uncheck both Spyware Doctor items and rebooting, the problem went away.

To test I re-checked the Spyware Doctor items and rebooted.... no more little Blue circle on my NIC icon during startup.....

Very Happy was really annoying !!
