Blue indicator of Win 7 circle network ALSO hang Device Manager and MSE does not

I have a strange problem since the recent windows updates.

Indicator of network in the bar tasks displays a blue circle for about 20 minutes after I start the computer. During this time I can't run regedit, I can't open the Device Manager, and I can't seem to activate the protection in real time to Microsoft Security databases. However all the time I have internet and network access.
After about 20 minutes the light will come back normal (sometimes it goes through a Red Cross first), date at which the computer then runs everything normally, if I have my phone on, I get the auto run screen, Device Manager works and I can also start MSE.
It's as if the computer is waiting for something to happen. Device problem? However, all devices appear to work normally.
The latest updates, I made were optional for monitor HP and Microsoft mouse and a keyboard, both of which work well in the era of 'blue circle '.
I also tried updating the adapter software.
It is not important, but it's annoying!

Hi Carmen,.

The blue circle on the network icon indicates that the system is looking for a network connection.

If it appears at the start, then start the modem and the router before you start the computer.

Method 1:

Using the troubleshooter from network in Windows 7

Method 2:

Step 1:

Check if the problem persists in safe mode with network.

Check out the link:

Startup options (including safe mode)

Step 2:

If the issue is not still in safe mode, and then start the clean boot computer to determine if a third-party program is causing the problem. To configure your computer to clean boot see the following link.

How to perform a clean boot for a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

Note: See "How to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting" under more information to prepare the computer to start as usual after a repair.

Also check the link for more information:

Slow PC? Optimize your computer for peak performance

Important: When running chkdsk on the drive if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data can be lost.

Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

  • No network card in Device Manager

    Windows has started giving me BSOD about 2-3 weeks after the installation of new hardware (CPU, MoBo, RAM, sound card) with old hardware (GPU, power supply, HARD drive, more RAM). Why he gave me BSOD this long after the upgrade, I don't know, but I have an inkling that it may be due to a processor AMD will an Intel processor without reinstalling the operating system. I was also able to activate Windows (he has started to think it wasn't authentic) since slui.exe did not work. I changed the power supply because of the requirements of power increased and finally reinstalled the operating system and now have a new copy of Windows active and ready to go. No BSOD (so far) no driver issues, nothing went horribly wrong.

    In this context, I present you my current problem: just before I reinstalled the operating system, when a backup of my data, I noticed that I couldn't connect to the internet. It showed I was connected to the LAN but no internet. I got hurt like that before, but it was either something I could fix it by resetting the adapter or the DSL down. I thought it was just another thing that turned bad in Windows and that a reformat/reinstall would fix it, as it does most of the problems.

    The thing is, after reinstalling Windows, I noticed while I was installing drivers from the CD to the MoBo that the LAN driver was not clickable. I checked Device Manager and, of course, there was no topic network cards. Search the hardware changes do not work, and flashing the BIOS (via M-Flash) did not work.

    Since the MoBo is around the age of two months, I believe it is not a hardware problem, but is there another possible explanation? I'm going to RMA this mid-September if there is no solution at this moment here.

    My motherboard is a MSI 785GT-E63. I will give all necessary data to solve this problem. Thanks for all the advice I can get.

    There is no unknown devices in Device Manager, I installed all the drivers for all my hardware. I even downloaded the latest drivers from MSI site, including the network adapter driver, which I installed it without result on another computer.

    There is a setting to disable or enable the LAN, but it is set to 'Active '. I'm also leaning towards the network chip being broken due to overheating of the thought. It is a turn intermediate with a huge GPU and poorly ordered PCI/PCI-e slots. The single NIC that will fit must be PCI-e x 1 which are more expensive (about $30). I'm leaning toward move my computer to a larger Tower (the one currently resides in my brother's computer) or, as I've mentioned before, RMA'ing it.

    Thank you for your response. I'll see if there are any other ideas or suggestions before the agreed time.

    Two hp 17-inch workstations mobile (business) Z book 17

    On consumer laptops, I can view the files on my external hard drive 1 to and 1 GB player.

    On these corporate work stations (mobile), I'm not able to view the files on the hard drive or flash drive.

    I need your help so that I can save files from the internal hard drive of the mobile platform of book z hard disk external.  And I need to be able to reconnect the external drives and readers to the Zbook mobile workstation to transfer files to transfer flash.

    Left click on the flash drive produces a pop-up with title bar G:\

    You don't have permission to access this folder.

    (3) contacted HP support

    (4) checked for malware using microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes and spybot on each mobile workstation

    (5) updated drivers using HP support assistant on each computer

    (6) windows update the device HP support assistant on each computer

    How do two new computers with win 7 pro can be connected to external drives that allow to view the files as they do with win xp and win 8 automatically?

    Here is the new mobile workstations HP Z book 17.

    Microsoft said that HP is responsible for the operation of win 7 in the first year for the operating systems pre-installed

    HP elite support doesn't know how to solve the problem with the USB ports on the two books of Z is not able to provide access to external hard drives or flash drives

    These two mobile workstations have problems of USB port with all the ports on each computer?

    These two mobile workstations have problems of windows 7 where the client has to learn how to use the registry to store external hard drives internal hard drives?

    What does do to be able to back up files on a disk external hard drive internal?

    Have to do to be able to use flash dirves with a 17 mobile workstation z book?

    This problem has been resolved.

    The book of Z 17 HP installed their software: HP Client Security.

    This software prevents the use of external hard drives and flash drives in its default settings.

    Each customer is on their own in discoverinv and the resolution of this problem.

    There is no warning.   He made no information on why a right click on a drive and checking the property do not work.

    The way in which this issue has been resolved was by a clean boot process in msconfig.

    When miscrosoft services were hidden items that remained were read.  Systematically, some were checked and unchecked, and the computer has rebooted to see if the problem was still in existence or if the problem has disappeared.

    Whenever the hard drive or flash drive has been verified.

    We were lucky that we checked to see if it was or not HP software at the beginning.  This problem was caused by the default client security HP who were to refuse all USB connections.

    This consumes a lot of time and was so frustrating.

    On the first book of HP Z 17 thin client HP security biometric authertication failed with a black screen.  The computer is about 15 days old.    All the dirvers for the HP notebook have been uploaded and then the software for biometric devices have been downloaded.  HP determined that it was a hardware failure of the biometric device, when drivers and software downloads together has not fixed the problem.  This computer had / has the same problem with not allowing communication with any external hard drive or flash drive.

    HP did wrong by not providing any information on the inside of this product the HP support assistant.

    Here's a consumer might encounter problems:

    The HP support assistant on Z book provides updates of drivers for windows, but the support phone number book mobile z is not listed.  There is a phone number, but it is a regular support, not z book mobile support or elite support.  Mobile Z book users are supposed to call the number fo elite press and the number is for a regular support on the wizard of book z mobile support.  Support assistant has cat support method and the HP chat support is not trained to book support z mobile.  There is a feature to contact the technical support and the transfer of data to the technician, and again, it goes to regular support who is not trained to support the mobile z book.  If you call the phone number provided some of the choices on the automated line includes desktop, laptop and office work.  If you choose Notepad you won't get z mobile workstation support.  If you choose work center you will get no support of z book mobile workstation.  Instead, you must have someone answer and then ask to be redirect to support elite.  On the first call, you never know that the support you are looking for is elite support until they give you this information on the next contact.

    After many hours spent barely pull on the problems of not being able to view files on an external hard drive or external dirve flash, I was able to change this HP software.  It now unfortunately produces a humming noise when parts of it are displayed.  This has not yet been set.

    It is the customer of HP security information:

    There was no information to reconfigure the software in the white paper.

    I was able to find a user guide.

    This guide was not and was not available through the HP support assistant:

    Hope this helps all who are unable to view the files on their external hard drives and external flash drives.

    The thin client HP security prevents click right change of ownership and prevent changes, right-click in the security, etc..  Change of Director fails also as the client security administrator HP overides too.

    So end users must change the HP Thin Client Security so that it does not block access to files on external hard drives or flash drives.
