    Network icon has been disabled from Windows Vista Taskbar

    Having issue with Icon is missing from taskbar. Still not facing issue with connecting to internet but icon not displaying. It will be difficult to see network sources easily. Can anyone suggest me, how to restore it again on Taskbar. This is happened after upgrading windows.

    You may also try the steps mentioned below to resolve the issue:
    1. Go to Start > Run (or Windows-key + "R"), type in "regedit" and hit "OK".
    2. Navigate to the key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify"
    3. Delete the values "IconStreams" and "PastIconsStream"
    4. Now open up the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc), go to the "Processes" tab, select "explorer.exe" and click "End Process"
    5. Now open the "Applications" tab and click "New Task..." at the bottom-right of the window.
    6. In the message box that pops up type in "explorer.exe" and hit "OK"
    7. Explorer.exe will reload, and the missing icons should now be back in the system-tray where they belong.
