For privacy reasons, I would like to run a screen logger program in the background, without its icon showing in the system tray. I need to completely remove the icon, not just hide it by using the "Customize Notifications" menu.

Is there some system tray entry in the registry that I can delete?

Thanks in advance. :)

Depends if the program puts a program there or not I think.

Although, you can hide the entire system tray using the registry.

Sounds dubious.

Thanks in advance. :) Any sort of logging program, if its any good will automatically hide its self, including the tray icons.

BUT then of course theres the antivirus and antispyware to contend with, as most will detect the program and render it useless, as its doing the exact same thing/actions as most viruses/spyware.

...and "devious"...don't forget "devious".

Or like Sylvester says: "Deth-spicable!" :o

Any more D-words? :D

Oh, Ooo..how about "demented"?


I like that word.
