I've successfully removed several unwanted startup icons from my System Tray using both msconfig and the startup remover in Spybot. However, I have SSC Utility installed, which is a printer ink checker and cleaner.No matter how many times I untick it and reboot, as soon as I use it again it reappears in the tray and, somehow is back and reticked in the list. Can anyone advise?
..probably the utility manufacturer.. What is the point of having the utility though, if you're going to turn it off? I personally don't believe in ink-checkers.. when the ink on the page starts getting lighter, you're running low. Manufacturers tell you to buy new ink after 1/3 is used just to panic you, helluva waste. PCAdvisor did an excellent article on their practices a couple of years ago, so it may be on the site somewhere. The printer's own software usually does the head cleaning, too, so I really don't get the point of this utility. Regards, Rab
The function of the program is such that the icon in the tray is the active part of the program- where as the panel the comes up on the desktop is the ink monitor, and printer selector. So a right click on the icon in the sys tray will bring up the various reset/headclean/ ink freeze options. Only an uninstall will there for remove it - which I am sure is not what you intend.
I have also used SSC which as you know is designed by a third party for use with Epson printers. Having a low spec PC, I only turned certain utilities on as and when I needed them as opposed to running on start-up. I achieved this with SSC by going to;
