HI

On each occasion when I start my PC, within the SYSTRAY certain items appear which I want to get rid of.
The procedure which I use to clear them is as follows:
Right click on task bar - click on properties - click on customize - the customized items appear - I select the ones which I either want to always show / always hide / always hide when inactive - click apply / OK

Upon completion only the items which I have nominated to show, appear. Fine
H/ever when I restart my PC certain items which I nominated not to be shown appear once more.

Can anyone advise me what I am doing incorrectly and why do these items nominated to always hide appear once I restart my PC.

Thanks

Do you mean they show up as before, or when you click the Show hidden icons arrow, they are still there?
To completely remove them from the taskbar, you have to stop the program in question, from running at startup.
This can usually be done from the programs, Options menu.

Some of these programs will reset themselves at boot time. Also, hiding the icons does not stop the programs from running - it just hides them from your view.

You may want to look at this free program for starting/stopping your startups at boot time: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Just be careful not to stop something your system needs. And, if stopping a bunch of them - only do a few at a time and then test the system. That way it'll be easier to find out what went wrong.

Hi Guys

Apologies for not getting back sooner but circumstances beyond my control prevailed.
Anyway have tried all possible suggestions but without any luck. It is not life threatening so I am going to forget about it altogether. The fact it works on and off was my concern. With my knowledge, not prepared to mess about with the registry.

Thanks

Have you checked to see what starts up when you turn your computer on?

To View go to Start > Run > Type msconfig > Click the startup tab

Dont uncheck it unless your sure you dont need it to start up.
