    I have a few icons in my systray that I'd like to stop loading, can anyone help please. Been searching but haven't found anything relevant.

    1. A double monitor icon with a big red cross, that when hovered over displays '' Local area connection, a network cable is unplugged ''

    2. Volume button.

    3. Safely remove hardware button.

    Thanks.....:


    Windows XP on a IBM R51.

    Thanks col, the volume one worked,

    The notification box was already unticked on the neighbourhood one, I clicked disable and the icon has gone, thanks.

    All I get when I right click the hardware icon is ''safely remove hardware'' it then brings a box up to enable disconnection :( cleaned the tray up nicely now, so I may just have to live with that one, thanks again.

    That's ok, thanks, I'll live with it for a while and get back to it later.

    Know anything about routers, I've been used to a desktop running W98 with a broadband connection, after 4 years or so of that, getting used to a laptop and XP all at once is taking some time.

    Been at this all week and the goings slow, the wireless connection is a bit technical for me at the moment, there's a lot to learn, I've been searching the site all evening to see if I can find out why I sometimes have a 48.0 Mbps then it suddenly drops to 11 or less, up and down like a yo yo, so many causes it seems, I'm getting more confused by the minute.

    Expect I'll get there in the end. :)

    Off to bed now, thanks for the help.
