Removing Network Unavailable icon

By Cisco_Guy ·
In Windows 2000, when you have a network adapter installed but NOT attached to a network, it puts an icon in the taskbar with an X through it indicating it is unavailable. Does anyone know if there is a way to disable this annoying icon? Thank you!

I don't wish to remove my network connection. I wish NOT to see that icon in my task bar everytime I disconnect from the network.

Enter the Network and Dial-Up connections,when the panel opens,you will need to right-click on said network icon go to properties, and in one of the tabs you will see show icon ..., you need to deselect that option.

Simulated the above question
Click-Start-->Settings,select Network and Dial-up Connections,when the panel opens right-click on the adaptor with the X in the line and select disable and it will not show in task bar upon reboot.

I'm sorry, perhaps I am not explaining this properly. I do NOT wish to disable my network adapters and render them useless. All I'm looking for is a registry hack perhaps, or a hidden command that will not display that icon with the X in the taskbar when you are disconnected from the network.

delete all files associated with the icon you dont want to see. also, try hovering over it. It might disappear. If it doesnt, you could do ALT+CTRL+DEL and double click rnaapp and then click END TASK. That should get rid of that icon.
