on mine W7,its when wireless adapter is disabled and is also not connected via ethernet.If i then connect via ethernet the cross disappears but rest of symbol remains.If I then re enable the wireless adapter,the whole icon is replaced with "strength bars"icon.

When the red X appears, can you still connect to your wireless network and to the internet? Hover your cursor over the red X and see whether you get a little flag telling you your network name and your connection details.
