Just drag and drop the icons out of the quicklaunch toolbar.  Assuming your taskbar isn't locked (right click taskbar, Properties, un-check "Lock the taskbar" - You should have full freedom to drag items into the taskbar area and out of the taskbar.

If your changes to the quicklaunch toolbar do not remain after logging in and out then take a look at the advice for modifying GPO settings as stated above me.
