Missing traffic lights

The little icon that usually sits next to the two little PCs in tray has disappeared.

Why is this and how to get it back please?

Thank you.

Thanks for your responses but it only occurred after having a new modem fitted yesterday. It was there before.

I'm using XP Home. I had to adjust one or two settings due to Freeserve's connection kit. i.e. now using a more recent dial-up number.

Nothing to do with virus software.

Sir,
Can you elaborate on that? The old one was an Intel modem - it got fried in Monday's storms.
It worked perfectly before that. The new one is an Intel 56k Fax Modem. Everything is working perfectly except the little red/green icon is missing.

IE6 - Tools, Options, Connections, Settings, Properties, show icon in taskbar (tick) gives you the symbols when connected. Is that what you were trying to do?

Thanks Big Elf but the box is already ticked and always has been but it only shows the two screens now and not the little stack which used to automatically appear with it.

It's not really important. I can live with it - or without it!

Thanks ayway,
Regards,
Sylvia.

I believe the traffic lights are from " sllights.exe " which, if installed, lives in the Windows folder.

I've found it in the Windows folder. It says it has encountered a problem so I reported the error. Under properties, virus tab, the same message came up. Perhaps it was deleted?

What is the purpose of this file? I don't know anything about it except that it indicates internet activity.

  watchful 13:33 13 Aug 2003

My modem is an Intel(R) 536EP V.92 modem.

I have the SLslights folder but it is not working.

Do you know what it is for?

  watchful 13:42 13 Aug 2003

Just seen your link. It does just monitor internet activity. Seems the same as SLlights.exe

You can download that one then.

No. I think the icon is missing because the programme has a fault.
