From the control panel, I go into metwork connections, and the window appears empty, though still searching, but I usually have to restart while the window is still there, cannot End Task. Want to check if firewall is enabled, but without internet connections I cannot get to it. How can I recover the connections icons, (doesn't affect me connecting to internet).
Running Windows XP.
