Hi hers a strange thing which is happening to my comp. if i switch the computer on as normal and let it load up i get a red cross bottom right of screen which then becomes a yellow triangle after a couple of minutes telling me that i have not got an internet connection, but if i switch the computer off at the mains ie crashing it, then switch it back on again the computer finds the internet connection every time has anyone got an answer to this as i dont want to damage my hard drive many thanks.

Switching Computer of at the mains is a sure fast way of destroying your computer Hard Drive

If it does not connect you should double click the network Icon you are on about click connect to follow through and find out the problem

Like woodchip says Maybe right click the Icon and press repair if it gives you that option.
Only asking for trouble switching it off at the main.
If using I/Explorer what version.
Is it a wireless connection that you have.
