After a recent crash, I had my computer serviced. Now there an icon for the Network Connection in the Systray (it looks like a computer with a red X over it) and when I put the cursor over it it says that the network cable is unplugged. I don't need this to connect to the internet since I used a USB connection. I didn't have this icon in the Systray before. Can I delete this icon from the Systray without affecting my connection? If so, how is it removed? Thanks in advance for instructions.

Go to Control Panel
Open Network Connections
Right click and select Properties of your connection (Local Area Connection) and on the General Tab at the bottom there are two check boxes for Show Icon in Notification Aea when Connected [b]and [b]Notify Me When This Connection Has Limited or No Connectivity
UNcheck these two boxes.
Click OK and the icon should be gone.

You will have to go to the Control Panel and the Internet/Network menu, under the Network connections you should see the same icon with a red X that says unplugged, right click on it and choose disable.



Hope that helps
