Recently my network connection icons disappeared. I am connected wirelessly to the internet just fine, but my connectivity icon is gone from the taskbar. When I go into the network connections folder a message comes up saying it is unable to retrieve the list of network adapters on my machine. I do not know what to do about this. Can anyone help me?

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

First I would go to Start -> Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Services

Go down to Network Connections and make sure its started, if not, right click on it and select Start.

If that doesnt work or its already started go to Start -> Run
Type each line one at a time hitting enter after each line:
regsvr32 netshell.dll
regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
regsvr32 netman.dll
