Internet access (W - Lan) but the symbol in the taskbar looks as if it was searcheing

I have access to the internet (W - Lan), but shows the symbol in the taskbar on the right side of the bottom of the screen that I havn't. All beams of force field are grayed out and the little sun is visible, as the system does when it searches for a network connection. As said, I have access, but the symbol seems strange, as it is looking for a W - Lan net.

Can anyone help?
Thank you

1. use Windows Wireless Management or another Manager?
2. don't you make changes to the computer before the show?
Follow the steps and check if that helps:
a. click on Start menu and enter regedit in the search bar and press ENTER.

b. go to:

Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify HKEY_CURRENT_USER

c. remove the following key data in this folder:






d. open the Task Manager.

Switch to the processes tab.

Kill all the process explorer.exe

(This is necessary because the explorer.exe has a copy backup of this key in RAM and rewritten it in the registry during shutdown)

Switch to the applications tab of Task Manager.

Press "new task".

Type "explorer.exe" and press [Enter].

    (2) close all running Applications.

    (3) close webistes all opened browser.

    (4)disable the firewall temporarily.

    (5) open only Adobe Web site as it is safe and secure site free of all kind of threats.

  • Internet not working not but the laptop says it's connected to the modem and "Internet access".

    My laptop says it's connected to our modem and having 'Internet access'. However, I can't use the Internet on any of my browsers. I tried to turn my Wi - Fi, and who have done nothing. I also tried to restart my laptop and modem, but who didn't do anything either. I checked the Device Manager to see if the NETWORK card worked properly. It said it was working fine. Unless it's lying to me. I plugged in an Ethernet cable to my laptop, but I still couldn't get on the Internet. I ran my computer in safe mode with networking with an ethernet cable but still could not access the Internet. I don't know what the problem is.

    I used troubleshooting and that's what he came back to me:
    "The connection between your access point, router or cable modem and the Internet is broken."
    I did what he told me to and restarted my modem... once again. It did not work.

    Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

    I have the same problem.  My internet connection seems fine.  I can connect to the internet on my laptop to the company, xbox 360, roku and my cell phone, but not my laptop from Sony.  When I check the connection it says its fine but when I run a diagnostic it says "the DNS server is not responding."  I checked with my cable company and that they 'refreshed' my signal, but it would not connect.  Even than your wi - fi network or directly with an ethernet cable.

    If someone could help us both appreciate it.

    Thank you

  • 'No Internet access' after reboot, but OK after cold start.

    My system has been restarted after a recent update of Windows, and although the Internet connection worked the status icon in the system tray showed the yellow triangle and "No Internet access." The State of the network has been "Identification." (This is a wired connection). When I tried to restart, shutdown took a lot of time and the system blue screened.

    When I started the system again, it worked OK. However, at each reboot later, I have the same problem and after each cold start, it's OK. On subsequent reboots, I notice that the Internet connection ends, and then returns to identify, even if the connection actually works.

    What is a next step of troubleshooting?

    Hello kwdavids,

    I suggest to perform a system restore to before the update was installed to see if it solves the problem:
  • Disabled Internet access after you apply the updates of Windows

    After you have installed the latest Windows updates, I lose all connection to the Internet. I can still see my network, but not do anything on the internet.

    I spent an hour yesterday on the phone with my ISP check it was their system, not a hardware problem with my modem or router.  I spend another 1/2 hour on the phone with Dell technical support.

    It turns out the issue was my DNS has been altered, and the only way to recover was to perform a restore of the system for 8/16.  Everything was going well after that... until Windows Update automatically ran last night, install the last two so-called critical updates. I don't know what is causing the problem, but my DNS was wiped out again, and I had again back 8/16 recovery point.

    I disabled Windows Update for the moment because I don't know how else to solve the problem; in the absence of any change to my system, I suspect it's updates are something to my DNS. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a better solution or another way to solve the issue that doesn't require me avoid all Windows updates in the foreseeable future? Is there a way to know if/when a later critical update solves the problem created by these?

    The cause has now been identified as McAfee updates and no Windows updates - they were both released at the same time.  If one of your PCs have McAfee so that they might be confusing your test results.

    See the communication from this "criticism" - McAfee

    Some customers may experience a loss of network connectivity and/or errors in McAfee Security Center after a recent update

    You should make the fix McAfee, if necessary.  The McAfee link applies to consumer products but there are corresponding communications for businesses - see, for example,.

    Corporate KnowledgeBase - DAT-6807/6808 causing problems with VSE 8.8.x

    I have McAfee, but the connection has started working again on its own so I thought I was clear of problems. However, when I checked it says he was doing routine checks the updates in vain when I told it to do a manually. So stick with McAfee you don't follow their procedure of fix would have upgraded my PC at risk by not updated and, as ads from McAfee have said since then, the application did not refer to his database of threats correctly [so, eventually, the variation in the degree of severity in the user experience]. Actually, I removed McAfee then installed Microsoft Security Essentials rather & my answer IE is faster I knew it [even though I had the Add-ons McAfee disabled for centuries].

    I had to run the McAfee Development removal a few times before and it caused a problem with the license if the PC was not connected to the internet during the abduction. Due cat of McAfee support reset their files in order to allow the relocation-reactivation. Here is their link cat - McAfee - media contains the link to the cat

    - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    If you do not have McAfee then Windows update that kb2705219 could be another cause that uninstalling that appeared to solve the problem for some users.  But, personally, I think they could only reached a temporary fix [I thought my PC was OK at the time, but it turns out does not do the trick, as explained above] to uninstall an update - panel, programs & features, [left side of the window] see installed updates. Wait until the system has finished the research for the list of updates. Select update required, then right click and Uninstall.

  • After running chkdsk because I had blue screen whenever I started, now it works but the taskbar and start button are gone! I tried to run explorer.exe but who did nothing!

    I have an emachines T6534 and whenever I start my computer, I would get an error stop 0 x 00000024.

    The Stop 0 x 24 message indicates that a problem has occurred in Ntfs.sys, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. A message similar to Stop 0 x 23, exists for the file systems (FAT16 or FAT32) file allocation table to.

    Possible resolutions:

    1. hardware malfunctioning SCSI and Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) or drivers can also adversely affect the ability of the system to read and write to disk, causing errors. If you use SCSI hard disks, check the wiring problems and ending between the SCSI controller and the disks. Periodically check Event Viewer for error messages that are associated with SCSI or FASTFAT in the journal system or Autochk in the application log.

    2. check that the tools that allows you to continuously monitor your system, such as virus scanners, programs of backup or disk defragmenters are compatible with Windows XP. Some drives and cards are issued with diagnostic software that you can use to run hardware tests.

  • Internet Explorer 9, missing from the taskbar

    original title: Internet Explorer 9

    I did a 'cable easy transfer' Windows XP to Win 7 to transfer data from my winXP on my win 7.  A run, clean, no problem, did a reboot following the instructions.  On the Win7 machine IE9 icon on the taskbar background was no longer there.   I added it back by pinning it but there now is more different links I had the installer on the taskbar above IE9 as google mail and my bookmarks, etc..  IE9 icon on the taskbar background always came when I started my PC.  Can someone help me please.

    Hi FranTaranto,

    Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community.

    If I understand what explore you face the issue with the Internet icon in the taskbar background always come when you started the computer.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you perform the clean boot and check.

    Place the computer in a clean boot state, then check if it helps. You can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Note: When you are finished troubleshooting, follow step 3 in the article to start on normal startup.

    Method 2:

    Check if bookmarks are available. Access the C:\Users\\Favorites\ location and check if you have the available bookmarks. As a general rule, all bookmarks who check us in Internet Explorer will be saved in C:\Users\\Favorites\ location.

    Toolbars could sometimes be hidden. Give to this article:

    Method 3:

    I also suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: During the scan of the hard drive if bad sectors are found, the scanner tries to repair this sector, all available on which data may be lost.

  • Installed the updates, but the display looks like windows 98 and the Wireless does not work

    I use a laptop with vista service pack 2 and I tried to update windows via windows update on the recommendation of the support page from microsoft on how to unload a debugger. There are only three optional updates available, I forgot what they are and after restarting the computer the theme looked like windows 98 and my without wire might work, and also, I was still having problems with the game with the question of the debugger.

    What should I do?

    (And Norton) McAfee applications are known to not uninstall (or upgraded) themselves. The 'remains' of McAfee may be cause of your problem.

    1. download the McAfee Consumer Product Removal, save it to your desktop tool:

    2. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the taskbar).

    3. click right on the file saved in #1 above, and then select run as administrator to run the utility. DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.

    4 test cycle.

    NB: If the application pre-installed McAfee subscription or free trial period has expired before you install Threatfire, the latter may not have installed correctly and can not work correctly since you installed it.
