Does anyone know how to configure these? Apparently when I syspreped the system to configure the default profile, these settings didn't copy over. I would like to have these preconfigure so tha new users automatically get the settings. I'm assuming that I can use a reg file deployed via Group Policies - Preferences, but I can't seem to find the key where these are controlled. I'm looking to customize individual icons, not the whole lot. Just so there is know confusion, I'm talking about the icons next to the clock - such as the Network Icon, AntiVirus (TrendMicro) Icon, Office Communicator Icon. Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

When you say 'configure these' I'm assuming you mean control which icons are hidden in the notification area?

You were right in finding that the default group policy settings only allow you to hide the whole lot, not individual icons.

The registry key you were looking for is:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

IconsStreams & PastIconsStream.

The only thing I can think of is to configure a user profile with the icons hidden the way you want them (as you tried before), and export these registry settings to then apply via group policy.
