tray beside clock too full

  scan513 18:17 17 May 2003

Hi everyone,

I just wondered if there is anyway to clean out the tray beside the clock on my computer,there are 13 things in it now and most I dont want, but can't seem to get rid of.
Any suggestions?

Go to start/ run type "msconfig" (without commas) go to startup tab - Identify and untick programs .

do you use windows xp? you can set it to hide the inactive icons

All those icons represent programs running in the background and using up resources, so it is best to do as Patr100 suggests and stop them loading rather than just hide the icons.

Thanks for info patr100 but when I do that it says: cannot find the file misconfig (or one of its components) make sure that the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

Ravin, I use windows 98SE.

mistyped msconfig as misconfig, problem sorted thanks for your help

just a reminder be careful not to stop something that windows needs to run properly(programs can be hard to identify in there!!
