Well, this may not be just what you need but:
If you don't want some of the programs which put an icon in system tray, you can choose to stop them start at start up. Their icons won't apear there, unless you open them manually.
Wish I can help

Sure there should be some way to do it, because when the explorer crashes most of the icons from the tray disappear. Similar as when you close the explorer.exe from the task manager (it will re-run again automatically), but it's not a very neat way.

Windows XP is also a good choice

Those utilities will hide the system tray icon but not disable it from running and using systems resources.  If you wish to prevent the icon from loading in the task bar open regedit and go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

there are a few other places in the registry but for now you should only concern your self with this branch.  Deleting the entry will prevent that app from loading on startup.

Hi, titan203

Please try SysTrayX.

I think this may meets your need. :)

SysTrayX is designed to maximize the way you can use your system tray: helps you hide some of the less used icons from the system tray; provides recovery for those icons if anything happens to the system tray
