After a program update to Nero, the taskbar is now cluttered with everything irrespective of not having any programs running or pages open.
ie Desktop, my Documents, My Computer, My Nertwork Places, Recycle Bin, Internet explorer (not with standing that Firefox is the default Browser), Nero, & Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all.
I am using Windows XP Pro.
The Taskbar Configuartion checked are:
Lock Taskbar,
Keep Taskbar on top of all windows
Group Similar Taskbar Buttons.

How does one eliminate everything from the Taskbar except open windows?
