removing an icon from my task bar

Hello,

How do I remove a network icon from my task bar? The network is disabled and the icon won't go away.

Thanks,
Tim

When you right click on it is the option to delete grayed out?

Do you mean the TASKBAR (which does not display a network icon) or the Desktop Tray Notification Area (which DOES display a network icon)??

If the latter, then open the Network Control Panel and choose the connection.  Then UNCHECK the "Show icon" checkbox.

If this icon in Tray and it always there, then it is probably an icon for LAN (or loopback) connection.
Then verify "Show icon" option for it.

Hi,

Yes, I'm sorry, I meant the tray. I had already gone into the network dialup connections area. The "show icon in taskbar when connected" box is unchecked.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Timshank,

4 ways :

left or right click the icon from the systray
may be there is an option

check control panel, may be there is an icon wich point to this card

check (start/run/regedit.exe) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

From Control panel / Admin. Tools / Computer Management
You find Services and Applications at the bottom left.
Open and select Services : the network card service need to have the disable status.

Hi,

I don't think there is a msconfig in windows2000, my computer says it can't find it. I did a search and didn't come up with any matching results.

Thanks,
Tim
