How to stop taskbar icons loading at start

Can anyone suggest how to prevent unnecessary icons form appearing in the taskbar. I have a number of programmes such as software for my camera which loads everytime I start the computer.

Click on start and go to Run and type in the box msconfig and press ok and choose selective startup. Here you and tick or untick all the prog. you want and dont want to startup during windows startup and press apply and reboot and when windows startup the next time you will see the difference. 10:03 19 Jan 2007

if you just want to keep desktop clear, right click on taskbar (the light blue bit by the clock) select customise notification and change what you dont want to see to 'always hide'

Thanks for the advice. It has worked. No icons.
