Is that the connection you're using for internet, or no?

That's the icon for a network. Apparently it thinks you've got a network cable plugged in. If you don't, and want to get rid of that, go to:
- Control Panel
- Network Connections
- Right Click Local Area Connection 2 and hit Disable

It should go away in a second.

Ohhhhhh...

Do you have a video capture card of some type?

If you want to get rid of the icon anyway:
- Right-click Start Menu
- Properties
- Taskbar tab
- Customize...
- Change it to Hide When Inactive or Always Hide.

Apparantly this connection just appears sometimes if u install a driver like a tv out or tv tuner driver. Its hard to get rid of, one person said after several reboot he was able to disable it and he was never asked of it again, until he reinstalled a driver...

The microsoft tv enables streaming broadband tv from the internet.
It requires a broadband connection and uses the existing
connection you already have.
It installs a set of protocols to make it functional,but shouldn't
interfere with your connection unless in use.

found this on a site.

Yeah I have had that come up a few times....usually when i'm watching winamp tv and things to do with streaming my capture card....usually a reboot gets rid of it, but I see what you mean it is quite annoying..
