    Almost looks like a "Searching for Dongle" of some sort, or 'Dongle not found' icon.

    Thanks - since the upgrade on Friday my icons in the 'show notifications from these apps' are black squares so I can't see what they are.

    There is one I'm not sure about called 'Connect' The others I know.

    Wireless Icon with a red cross, but you're connected though? Though I think it's a damn bug...

    Don't worry that bug will be fixed soon

    Don't think it's wireless the icon is different.

    I think it could be AVAST SecureLine VPN which seems to be enabled following an update. I've disabled it and now the icon doesn't show.

    I'll mark this as solved and open a new thread about my black square issue.

    You're correct!

    That is Avast SecureLine that was causing the problem.

    Problem Solved.... Not a bug
