I am running WIN XP Home edition. I want to hide the taskbar Icon "Local Area Connection" I can do this
by rightclicking on the tasckbar select properties, select Customise.  selext Local Area Connection from
the Current Items list, and the from the pull down Menu, select "Always Hide".

The trouble is, the it comes back, after rebooting -- sometimes not at first, but eventually comes back.
I want to know how to dis-able it from showing permanently.

TIA

Sounds nice, but when I went to the dialog box, that option was not checked.

Run this .reg file.
It will remove the icon from the task bar after a logoff.

--- Connect.reg ---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\{D4A05720-6F68-4D11-86F2-5885C017CF99}\Connection]
"ShowIcon"=dword:00000000
