    When I start up my PC I notice sometimes that the internet icon in the taskbar has a red cross over it......yet the connection is fine.

    How do I stop this from happening?

    Hello and welcome to the forum :)

    During startup, this is caused simply by the service not being started yet. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do.
    I know it's annoying, you're not the only one with the problem.

    The only thing that would help is speeding up your startup process if at all possible.
