All my network icons are gone. Nothing shows in "Network Connections". I have the option to show even hidden folders, but nothing comes up. So I made a new connection(really the same, but named it different), marked the box to show the icon on the taskbar(did this under the old connection options as well), and still no icons show. The worst problem is that there is no way to disconnect unless I close the browsers and the disconnection box shows. Sometimes, even that does not happen. Where did my little "computer icon" go that showed my connection? I must not be the only one with this problem because I did a search and a couple other people described the same problem on an annoyance website. But I'm hoping you computer geeks can help me. It is actually for my mom's computer, and I need to simplify it as much as possible. Can anyone help? (Oh, we only use dial-up)

Well, the answer was in my services. I saw I was not the only one with the problem. It's a mystery why it was changed, but the "network connections" in Services.msc had been disabled. Simple solution to a very frustrating problem. My icons in network connections reappeared along with my status connection icon.
Thank you , Geeks.
