I know there are programs to do it but all of them seem to just shift the screen down and/or not work perfectly. anyone knows a registry hack i can use to remove it?

Why do you want to remove the Taskbar?

Not sure why you would want to do that but if you click on the top bar of the taskbar and drag it down to the bottom of the screen the task bar will disappear. It will still be there but you won't see it.

@cryptodan, ObjectDock+rainmeter makes the taskbar useless

@strolln, thats for XP, the removed it for Vista and i think 7 because too many people were complaining about their taskbar disappearing

I find the taskbar essential to any operating system. What if Objectdock fails to load or start up? What will you do then?

You're right, I just tried it in Win 7 and it doesn't work. Learn something new everyday.

:huh:

That answer is just hilarious. Even more so because when ever I somehow screw up and lose my taskbar, I DO panic.

Is auto-hiding it an acceptable solution if you can't find a way to completely disable it?
