I am trying to remove items from both the left and right sides of the Widows taskbar which normally appears at the bottom of the Windows Screen.

All advice and tips so far indicate that I can remove the program icons by going to the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties > Advanced Tab > then click on the "Advanced" button to remove the task bar programs.

I get the following message: "Access to Specified device, path, or file is denied"

?????Confused. How do you delete all the junk icons that install themselves on your taskbar?????

Right click on a blank area of the taskbar, go to properties untick "Show quick Launch " to remove all items on the left then select customize and under Behaviour click on whatever programs you want to hide and set their behaviour to Always Hide.

Apart from that, some programs you install have an option to show or hide the taskbar icons.

I don't know what programs you currently have displayed on your taskbar ?

That's not quite correct. That controls what programs/folders appear on your Start Menu, not your taskbar.

If you are referring to the the quick launch bar, simply R-click on the icon you want to delete, select Delete. Depending on your user account privileges, you may not be able to delete them - you should be logged in as the administrator.
