The icons on the lower right hand side of your screen where your clock is located are programs that are running in the background. Some of these programs are in the startup folder and some are located in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

To remove from the Starup folder:
1. START | SETTINGS | TASKBAR
2. Locate PROGRAMS | STARTUP
3. Delete files you don't want running at startup.

To Remove from the Registry (BE CAREFUL HERE OR YOU'll DISABLE YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM) do the following:

1. START | RUN
2. type in REGEDIT
3. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
4. Remove programs you don't want running.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU DO IN REGEDIT!!!!!!

Right click on the icon and click delete . If you don't want them to go to the recycle bin hold the shift key before you click delete

Oh yes, you will need to restart your machine for any of this to take effect.
