Hey souper,

As of yesterday, I am unable to view my network connection status. Additionally, the icon in the lower right corner of my task bar has disappeared. When I go to my connections and right click to view the status of a connection, nothing happens.

Please follow the steps outlined in the MS Article: How to troubleshoot missing network connections icons in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows XP.

It sounds like your machine may be infected. I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE thread. These self-help tools will allow you to clean up to 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after performing these steps, then please follow Step Five: Rootkit Detection and Step Six: Post an OTListIt2 Log; ensure you post your logs in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run and/or post any of these logs, then mention that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
