Windows 7 Network Icon has Red X

Hi All,

My Windows 7 x64 install comes up with a red X on the network icon in the task bar. Even though my wireless and lan are successfully connected and everything is working.

This is a real pain as I have reinstalled latest drivers and even re-formatted but nothing seems to work. Hours spent googling hasn't helped either.

My computer is a HP elitebook 8440p

If anyone knows how to help there are 500 points on the line!
