    I am using WinZip with Vista RTM and there is two options if you right click
    on the icon in the task bar. The first one is "Close for now" and the
    second one is "Close and Remove - from the task bar".

    In Windows XP, both options show up, but in Vista, the second option is
    greyed out, you can't remove it from the task bar. Does anyone know how to
    remove this?

    Thanks

  2. Delete it from your "Startup" folder.

    I am signed in as Administrator but when I try to access the startup folder,
    it says access denied.

  4. I'm not sure why do you have problems accessing Startup folder, I was able
    to open both user and public folders without administratve priviledges.
    Folders in question are:
    All Users:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    Per-user:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start
    Menu\Programs\Startup

    IMHO better way to control startup programs is using built-in MSCONFIG
    utility. Just find appropriate entry on the Startup tab and uncheck it, then
    reboot.

  5. Oops, got me. I have no idea why you can't edit your Startup folder. Like
    Alexander, I can, and that's how I got rid of WinZip 11's "Quick Pick" icon.

    I would rather look for StartUpPCLon the Internet. It is free and much
    easier to use.

    I think I know why, it was because I went to C:\Program Data\Start Menu and
    I guess that isn't the way to go according to your sample.

    When I chose the path you suggested, it worked.

    Thanks
