          You must be using Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. This is a well-documented problem and both Microsoft and McAfee are working on it. Until it's solved you'll have to uninstall IE8 Beta 2. Your previous version is still there.

              Try uninstalling IE8. If IE8 was installed before you installed SP3 then you are stuck with it and McAfee wont work, probably until after IE8 goes final which could be a while, so you would have to either format and reinstall your system without IE8, or uninstall McAfee and use something else in the meanwhile.
              Maybe a computer help forum can help you with the icons/connection issue.

                  Sorry I was getting you mixed up with someone else with a similar issue, my apologies.

                  I'm assuming that you rebooted after uninstalling IE8. It would appear then that there is another issue.

                  I suggest that you contact Technical Support Chat which are available 24/7 via the link at top left of the page, or in my signature.

                      If it were me I would format and reinstall the system. It seems to me that you need to be asking these questions on a PC help forum. I'm afraid that I'm no expert in those matters.

                          I doubt very much that it's McAfee that has caused that. These are the sort of problems one gets when using beta - anything.

                          It sounds to me very much like a major infection got in somehow.
