Remove network connections systray icon...

    Question

  • I'm trying to remove the network tray icon programmatically.  In Windows 2003/XP I could just remove the key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7007ACCF-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E}" but that isn't the case anymore in 2008R2.  

    Anyone know how to access the "Turn system icons on or off" automatically and turn off "Network?"

    TIA.

  • Why don't you try for group policy settings to accomplish it. Here is the way to set user configuration settings.Also use same settings to enable/disable icons from notification area.

    User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar -> Remove the networking icon= enabled.
