Windows 7: Microsoft Network Status Utility

01 Mar 2018   #1

Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 w/Convience Rollup (KB3125574)
Microsoft Network Status Utility

Is there anyone out there that can identify the name (title) of Microsoft's Network Status Utility (EXE)? Note: Not to be confused with the highly-revered Network Activity Utility (NetworkIndicator.exe)!

My reason for asking is that Windows 7 SP1 refuses to allow me to add its icon to my Notification Area. I've even used GPEDIT to modify (Disable) the setting of Remove Network from Start Menu.

I have no clue as to why Windows is so stingy (pronounced: anal) about its allowing this icon's presence!!!!

Microsoft Security Essentials Update Utility
One disadvantage of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is that it uses Windows Update to update the virus definition files. If you disabled the Windows update for some reasons MSE won’t update anymore. The MSE Update Utility can be used here to update MSE even if Windows Update is disabled.
