    click on the RUN program then type REGEDIT > OK
    the start up programs are located in these 2 locations:

    1st Location:
    HKey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    2nd Location:
    HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    you can then CAREFULLY select the programs you want deleted and not to autorun
    at start up.

    NOTE: editing the registry file requires advance skills. if not skillful
    enough, your machine can go bad and unusable until you reload the OS and
    programs. edit the registry file at your own risk.

    Hi beto666,

    If the program itself does not have a setting to not show a tray icon,
    then you can set them to be hidden. They will not show after that.

    I want to customize my interface. To have control over it.

    I do not want to stop these programs from running.
    I do not want to just collapse the list.

    I want to either deny programs access to the system tray or if that
    would prevent them from running I want to override what the system tray
    displays.

    If you people can't help me do this I'll spend hours of my time looking
    for a program on my own (because I have to wade through so much of this
    bad help that is showing me how to do things that I already know how to
    do and do not want to do.) If I have to pay money for it I am going to
    deeply remember this and go out of my way to deprive Windows of money by
    finding alternative versions of their programs and preaching about how
    great they are because someone thought it would be a good idea to make
    it virtually impossible for me to completely hide something from the
    -aesthetic- part of windows.

    So please. When people ask how to do this either tell them how to do it
    or keep your mouth shut about these options that nobody was asking for.
    If that's too hard you could simply ask if, whoever, wants exactly what
    they were asking for or just a similar option before you go "answering"
    them

    Hi Shoko,

    This tutorial will show you how to have all Notification icons to be
    hidden and no longer show in the system tray. The programs will remain
    running.

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/138395-notification-area-hide-all-system-icons.html

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    On another note:
    When you are requesting FREE help, it is best to do it without
    attitude. Most people would ignore a post like the one you posted here.
