    If I understand your question correctly, you are referring to the icons in the taskbar (adjacent to the clock). If this is correct, you should be able to right click an open space on the taskbar and uncheck lock taskbar. This will alow you to right click the offending icon and delete it. You can then go back and lock the taskbar again.

    not sure if it works the same as 98 but.

    click start\run type msconfig click OK... put a tick in selective startup then click on the startup tab..uncheck what you don't want to run at startup and click apply

    hope that helps
