    My HP SlimLine PC has space-robbing icons in the Taskbar Tray that show
    whether the Caps Lock, Num Lock or Scroll Lock keys are active. Nothing
    happens when you left or right click them.

    Control Panel keyboard options doesn't mention these icons. Are they native
    to Vista or HP-generated? I don't want to uninstall mulimedia keyboard
    support but I can't find answers there either. Does anyone know how purge
    these icons from the Tray?

  3. The HP keyboard software generates those notifications.
    If you had a Microsoft keyboard and installed IntelliType
    software, a notification would appear for a few seconds on
    the screen, then disappear.

    This turned out to be a lame question. There is an HP app you can uninstall
    in Control Panel that specializes in those 3 icons. Just didn't notice it
    at first.
