Not sure. I've had this computer for about 6 years. The modem was upgraded from an "intel" to a U.S. Robotics 56k v.92 modem over a year ago. This problem just started happening a couple of weeks ago.
It's probably a setting in the modem itself or in the connection to the ISP that is overriding your tray display.

What is deep freeze? I don't recognize the name so I guess I do not have it. Thanks. I still don't know what is causing it. Doesn't seem to be a big deal, but it is odd.
not a likely answer to your problem but possible:
do you have deep freeze if you do your computer resets itself when it is restarted

WOW, that could cause the problem I'm having?? Seems like alot of other things would be affected too if that was the cause. I do have a surge protector. And the problem that this topic is concerning is the only one that I'm aware of. So how do I take my investigation further? Or is that the only thing that could be causing the problem?
He is talking about any large electrical appliance which may cause a surge in your power supply when it turns on. It is a very good idea to have your delicate equipment protected by a 'surge protector', as expensive a one as you can afford, but even a cheap one is better than none. All sorts of spikes and surges in the mains from lightning or crashes into poles can damage your equipment.

Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner, I've been away.
first of all i'm referring to deep freeze being the problem itself as it resets your computer after it is turned off but i realize that's not it.
when you do connect to the internet it works normally but the connection icon doesn't appear right? If you sent a screenshot it would be helpful for solving your problem. (press print screen button on your keyboard to do a screen shot then you can paste it)
