      Re: what is this

      You have (possibly inadvertantly) double clicked the internet connection icon. This box just shows your connection status.

      If by delete, you actually mean close, it is sometimes possible that the page may have frozen. Simply rebooting the PC will rectify the problem.

      Thats what having UPnP enabled does It adds an Internet connection to your networking connections.

      If you turn off the UPnP in the router that will disappear.

      Ahhh, that makes sense of the deletion comment. I thought Andy was trying to get rid of the status box. Good shout NR
