Windows 7: Red X in system tray

23 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x32

Ok, what is wrong with my machine?. I just turned it back on and the red X disappeared and the internet is working again This is the second time it fixes by itself, but I don't want it to keep doing that.
. What is going on?
