This is a first. I can't disable the unused network connection port as I get an error box telling me word for word:

"Error Disabling Connection

It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug-and-Play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account."

That mean anything? It's not a huge deal as there's nothing connected in the port, I just want the unused network connection icon out of my system tray. For the record, my motherboard has 2 ethernet ports, so obviously I'm only using one of them.

Thanks in advance

Never mind, I was able to disable it through the Properties.
