Problem with Icon Size in 'Manage Wireless Networks'

Hello... I'm running Win7-Home(64-bit) When I enter 'Network & Sharing Center' > Manage Wireless Networks, for some inexplicable reason, the icon showing my network connection has suddenly changed to 'small' (VERY small!!) when it was previously 'large' I checked 'View' and also right-clicked free space in window, but all other options are now greyed out. Anyone know what's happened and how I can reverse it? Many thanks

It may be that some corruption has occurred and relevant files are damaged.

There are two things that come to mind that you could try-

1- See if you can do a restore, maybe the problem occurred after an update?

2- Try running a scan/repair using the SFC /SCANNOW command. This will check and repair if necessary any critical Windows system files to do this click on Start/All programs/Accessories then right-click on Command Prompt option and select 'Run as administrator'. At the command prompt enter: SFC /SCANNOW

You might also have a look at- click here shows how to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows 7.

Good luck!
