Hey guys,

   I always forget these simple little things, but I need to know how to get rid of the C-Media mixer device that starts up on the taskbar. I believe it's a registry key that you delete. I also need to know how to get the windows mixer to startup in the taskbar. I am doing this as the administrator under windows xp, and want it to affect all users. Thanks!

Start > Run > REGEDIT > "OK"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

StringValue (REG_SZ) C-Media Mixer = Mixer.exe /startup

Delete the string value.

...and then reboot, of course :-)

That SHOULD work.

Or just run this .REG file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.0

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"C-Media Mixer"=-

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices
"Volume" tab > "Place volume icon in taskbar"

I'm looking to see the registry key affected in WinXP.  In Win98 it is:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\SysTray

Thank you, Noose215.  nycon99's method is obviously the easiest method, but there will always then be a blank checkbox in MSCONFIG's startup tab and I wasn't sure whether you wanted to prevent users from messing with the C-Media volume control.
