Hi jmendoza1,

Yes tried looking there it is not asking for any files specifically. The system loads perfectly no glitches I can go on line without any problem. I just can't get a status icon to tell me if I get disconnected or slowdowns. And all the icons in the network folder are goooone so I can't add a new connection to see if that works. If  I go to the install network on the CD it can't find the files on my HD or CD. Very frustrating if not catastrophic. Even thought the system runs fine and as I said if I open IE a connection box comes up I can conect no worries but a soon as the connecting process finnishes bingo no icons anywhere. Greg
