I have terminal services running on the Windows 2003 server, so that users can connect with WYSE thin clients.  I also have Carbonite running on the server.  I've gotten multiple calls from users today because of a warning that Carbonite puts up.  I would like these kinds of Carbonite messages to only appear for the user administrator.  Do you know of a way to limit the Carbonite icon in the system tray to only the administrator user?

TO USE GROUP POLICY TO HIDE THE NOTIFICATION AREA:

1. Use the Group Policy editor to navigate to User Configuration / Administrative Templates / Start Menu and Taskbar.
2. Double-click Hide the notification area and Enable the policy.

When this policy is Enabled, the notification area, on the right-hand side of the taskbar, is hidden, except for the system clock. Only the Start button, taskbar buttons, any configured custom toolbars, and the system clock are displayed.

I haven't done much with group policies.  Once I make the change you described, to I have to assign that policy to users, or does it automatically apply to all users?

In Documents and Settings there's an All Users section. Make sure the application is not listed here.
Also right click on Start, select Open All Users | Programs | Startup and make sure the application is not being launched here as well.
It should only be launching for the Administrator.
