I am using Vista Home Premium (SP1) and i,m on a home network wirelessly. Several weeks ago the network icon in the notification area disappeared and the item in the taskbar was greyed out.. From information from Google i deleted 'iconstreams' and 'pasticonstreams' in the registry and was able to access the icon again. Today, the icon again had disappeared and i followed the above change in the registry where the entries were there with data values. However, this time when i went back to the taskbar and notification boxes the network box was geyed out. Any suggestions to get my network icon back and to hopefully keep it. Thanks.
