Problem of gray network icon with yellow star despite my pc is connect

Good evening everyone,

I would like to explain my problem and I hope to find a solution because for over a month I look for a way without success. I am under Windows 7 professional and after installing (and uninstalling) the driver "bluesoleil" of my bluetooth card, my network icon is gray with a yellow star, despite my PC is connected through wifi to the internet. I used everything, google, forums, Microsoft etc .... and I uninstalled and re-installed the wireless network cards, and all the solutions did not work. Thank you in advance for helping me solve this problem of gray icon with a yellow star.
Rick

I am struggling as its not in english but the problem is likely down to Kaspersky Security Data Escort Adapter a lot of Av stop direct internet access and it goes via their own VPN type of server so it can scan all incoming and outgoing threats etc so windows doesnt see internet access.
