Hello I am currently running windows 7 on a Samsung laptop. About a couple months ago I attempted to run multiple virtual box systems on my laptop, after some time I found no use for them anymore and uninstalled virtual box. just recently i noticed that my wireless status icon was displaying the wrong information, it displays that I am not connected to any network and that network connections are available, but I am properly connected and I have full internet access.
This is what appears when I am experiencing the issue: Network Icon.png 14.82KB 0 downloads
Now I have tried uninstalling my wireless card software and I have also checked to ensure there is no virtual box host networking drivers remaining after my uninstall. I am out of ideas now as i have tried everything to the best of my knowledge, the only idea I have as a last resort is to do a full repair install of windows 7, but that seems slight overkill just over a simple thing as a network icon displaying the wrong information.

Anyway one thing I have noticed is that when I uninstall my wireless card and do a reboot, it detects my wireless card and then proceeds to install the drivers automatically, and once the drivers are installed the wireless icon seems to function properly again, until i reboot a second time. after the second boot the icon goes back to the same problems.
Might I add, its not causing any loss of functionality of any sort, I am just particular and it is bothersome to look at when I am working on my laptop.
