How to Hide the "Network Cable is Unplugged" Task Tray Icon

I've tried going into the Properties of the network card that is showing up in the tasy tray (with a red "X" -- it's disconnected) and if i "check" or "uncheck" the "Show Icon in Notification area when connected" (on XP) and that, as the short description indirectly indicates, that it doesn't remove the disconnected task tray icon.

How do i do this in XP? Registry?

Thanks

Disable the NIC in Device Manager.

Hi aniston,

Depending on your Windows version. Open "Control Panel->Network Conenctions->Local Area Connections->Properties". You will see all the components that are used for your connection and at the bottom of that display ther should be a checkbox "Show icon in taskbar when connected". Unchek that box and the stupid text will go away (with the icon in the taskbar!)

Right-click the system tray and go to Properties.  Next to the box that says "Hide inactive icons," click Customize.  Then next to the network card, select 'always hide.'  That should keep it from appearing.
