    Wireless Network tray icon not opening


    Dear EightForum members,

    I have a problem since a few days. On my Windows 8 Pro machine the icon is not working. When you normally click it opens the list of wireless networks and such, right? Well, mine doesn't do that anymore. Internet does work though, but I can't see to where I'm connected or connect to new network. Can any of you help me?

    Thanks in advacne

    Welcome to the forum!

    Try running a Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth as explained here: DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    Do you have a restore point before this started?
