Windows 7: networking icon

08 Jan 2010   #1

networking icon

Hello everyone,

Im really new here and have a bit of a stupid question, if such a thing exists anyway. But here we go: I am disturbed by the network icon beside the clock in the right down corner. It used to flash with network traffic and it doesn't anymore and I want that back, with XP that was better. Is there a setting somewhere for this?
