Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
"One last suggestion: check what programs run automatically when you start or log into windows. Many will add icons to the notification area, reducing the available space and increasing clutter. Make sure you actually want them."
Ok already will someone please explain how the hell you get rid of programs that load themselves into this area. I can do everything else in the taskbar but this one has me baffled. I even looked in the mother of all books for win 98.NOT ONE THING MENTIONED how to take the crap off there permanantly Ive tried dragging, right clicking, left clicking. I do not understand why there is absolutly nothing in plain english how to modify this section. A friend had the same problem the only way he found hw to do it was download a copy of clean sweep and there was an option to remove programs that want to sit there and eat up ram and resourses. I don't understand why nobody else feels the frustration of not being able to control what goes on in this box Iam sick of closing down 3 or 4 programs everytime my computer starts it's right click, exit, right click, exit right click exit, on and on and on.

hello sir i am in a big problem that i am fed up of seeing this word "START" on taskbar. i want to replace it with my name. pls help me out.
thanks to u.
I didn't think there was, but the first result on a google search for "windows xp change start text" was this: http://www.theeldergeek.com/change_text_on_xp_start_button.htm
DESPITE the fact that the toolbar id LOCKED, I cannot get the Quick Launch toolbar to load up AUTOMATICALLY when I boot up/switch on the computer.
Any ideas. My PC is using the latest/last version of XP Home and is a Compaq Presarion.
How do I restore "Past Items" from my Quick Launch? In particular, I want "remove hardware safely", but I really want to know how to manipulate these items.
Debbie (please answer)
