Hi, I have windows xp pro on a dell m70 laptop. Recently my system tray has become a mess, so i've been going through and getting rid of things that I don't need. I've got everything that's unneeded removed or disabled, but I can't get rid of the "safely remove hardware" icon in my system tray. The hardware that it detects is my dvd+-rw drive, and I don't intend to ever remove it. Is there a way I can get this out of my system tray?
Thanks for any help!
P.S. I know that it is possible to "hide inactive icons," but that doesn't really fix the problem since its still there, just behind the "double arrow" expand symbol.
