    Hide icons in the notification area


    If you don't want to see icons in your notification area (the bottom-right corner near the clock), regardless of whether or not they're in use, here's how to remove them:
    1. Right-click the Start menu and then click Properties.
    2. Click the taskbar tab and then click the Customize button.
    3. Scroll to the icon that you want to remove and click its behavior listed on the right. Change the icon's status by selecting from the drop-down menu.
    4. When you're finished, click OK.
    Tip is courtesy of the book Windows XP Killer Tips by Kleber Stephenson.

    This is the right way to do this with full security......

    What Is The “Notification Area”?

    The Notification Area (sometimes called the “Task Tray”) is where programs, which are running in the background (like anti-virus), store their icons. The Notification Tray is located in the bottom right of the screen, next to the clock.

    How To

    1. Hit the Windows Key+R, type regedit into the run dialog and hit OK.
    2. Now that you’re in the the Registry, navigate to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
    Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer


    Create a new DWORD value by right-clicking the right pane and click New, then DWORD Value


    # Name this newly created value:
    NoTrayItemsDisplay
    # Double-click NoTrayItemsDisplay and, in the Value Data text box, assign it this value: [2]
    1



    6. Close the Registry and reboot your machine.

    When your machine starts up again, you will see a clean Taskbar without the Notification Area!
