Can I remove fixed program from tray?

By billballew ·
Win98 Q: I have Iomega tape drive S/W installed. It installed a program in the quicklaunch and stays in the middle tray at the bottom. I have to right click and close to get rid of it. How do I remove this from the bootup? It is not in the Programs Startup . I suspect I have to do a registry change for this.

Thank you

See if you can delete it from this key here.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Not the whole key just anything that points to Iomega stuff.

From you run command type. "msconfig" a screen will pop up and go over to the start up tab. You will see a list of programs that start during bootup. In this screen you should be able to uncheck the ones you don't want to load during start up. You will be prompted to restart.

I hope this helps

Thanks very much. Seems like MS should not make it so difficult to find something this straightforward.

Right click on the icon in the tray and find the preferences or properties of the program. Open them and look for the option to load at startup. Once you find it disable the option and you should be good to go.

Answer #3 makes sense and I am sure it will work .... There will be an option within the program to disable loading at startup ...

Good Luck !
