:huh: Hey I am totally stumped on how to fix this. This has happened a number of times to a few of my Windows Vista equiped PC's and its really bugging me now. On the bottom right in the taskbar where all the notification icosn for sound , network , and so on are located the network notification icon does not work. I have full 100% access to the internet and I am browsing fine and it still shows a red "x" over the notification icon there is no yellow or blue indicators anymore. Now i try right clicking it and it lag's and then I try accessing the network folders and it lags and stays at a white box showing like an empty folder. Is there anyone out there that knows ho to repair this issue and if so can walk me through a step by step simple way to do it. I would greately appreciate all the help I can get. Thankyou!

Have you checked your LAN properties to be sure it hasn't been disabled?

Go to Network Places and you should see your Local Area Network connection. Is it disabled? If it is, you should be able to right click it and enable it.

Hope this helps.

hmmm, but you have internet access? That is strange.

:huh:

If you have a red X on your network icon or are unable to open the Network applet this will fix it. Gotta love Google, he he he

1. Go to Start > Run > cmd

2. Copy/paste the following line and hit your Enter key:

Net localgroup Administrators localservice /add

3. Reboot your computer.

If you don't have the Run command showing when you click the Start button
follow the instructions below. HTH

To add the Run command on the Start menu in Vista do the following.

Right click the start button

Choose Properties

On the Start menu tab click Customize

Scroll down and check Run command

Click Ok and then Apply/Ok to save the changes
