    I have XP. In the Task Bar notification area........is there anyway to delete or move an icon out. I know how to hide them, but there are a couple I would like to remove. One is Windows Messenger and the other is Safely Remove Hardware. I have searched and searched and cannot find an answer.

    Thanks in advance, Poochee

    #53 left side..."Remove past items from notification area"

    To use the VBS Files: Download .vbs file and save it to your hard drive (you may want to right click and use Save Target As). Double
    click the vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.

    NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled. These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.
