How to remove the audio icon from the taskbar in 2008 server

On 2008 Server if you don't have a sound card installed you get the no audio driver icon in the task bar.  Since almost all of our servers dont have a sound card, they all get this dumb error.  This behavior did not happen in 2003 Server and I am wondering why MS decided to waste space in my taskbar with this?  Any idea how to remove it?  Disabling the Windows audio service doesn't do it...

Right click on the taskbar and select properties. From there click the Notification Area tab and you will be able to select what system icons you wish to be displayed down there.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
