    Can anyone tell me how to restore the wifi icon in the taskbar? I have
    vista home premium on an HP laptop. It was there this morning, and now,
    when i turned it on, its gone.
    I right clicked on the taskbar, then left clicked on properties, found the
    notification area, and the network square is grayed out so I can't put a
    check in it. I think that is what would put the icon back next to the
    battery icon.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but a restart didn't fix it. It gave me an idea,
    though: restore point.
    There had been a vista update on the 1st so I restored to 2 days before the
    I don't know if the update caused the problem or not, but the restore fixed

    Do you people have some kind of fixation with registry tweak or high-tech
    geek ?
    What's wrong with doing a system restore, picking the date the icon was
    present ?
