Windows 7: Yellow triangle over system tray network icon

Yellow triangle over system tray network icon

Hi all,
Just a minor issue. When I boot up (or restart) my PC, all my system icons appear as they should, but a yellow triangle appears over the network icon (it is a wired connection). It goes away after a few seconds and internet access is normal. It never used to do this until a few days ago. Is this a normal thing? My PC boots up very quickly, as ages ago I disabled loads of useless start up programs. Aside from this, all is fine. The PC is Windows 7, with MSE security. Out of curiosity I actually uninstalled the security package to see if that was the cause, but it was the same. Thanks in advance.

I would say its normal, perhaps the driver has been updated and it just takes longer to connect.
Mine has done the same.
