Just noticed this symbol above one of my internal hard drives. Im sure it used to be just a standard symbol for a hard drive? What does it mean?

It's the wireless networking wizard.

does the hard drive happen to have a Wireless Network Configuration file saved on it? I know that when you are running the Wireless Network Configuration setup on an XP machine, you have the option to save the data to a thumb drive. Then when you insert the drive in the other computers it will display that icon. I'd check the drive and look for the folliwing folders and files:

J:\SMRTNTKY
setupSNK.exe
AUTORUN.INF

Where "J" represents the drive letter of your 2nd hard drive.

if those files are present, remove them or move them to another directory.
then restart the PC.

thats the icon for a Wireless USB adaptor, windows has just got confused. If it doesnt go away after a restart, then removing the drive, start windows, shut down, replace drive will get rid of it :-)

Ok thanks for advice.

My broadband modem broke the other day so decided to use the wireless router i got as well even though dont want wireless. Installed it and added the password etc but when i checked with my laptop i could connect without it asking for a password! Anyway uninstalled it and reset the router back to default settings (leaving the ethernet cable attached) and now its stopped being wireless but that symbol appeared?

See if it stays there after a restart etc

Both repped :thumbsup:

Dear lord. Do you actually own a farm of tiny ten year old harddrives, or have you some weird aversion to using folders or something?
