Hi all, I found this thread on the web searching for how to remove my usb "safely remove hardware icon" from system tray. I use winXP and I don't want to hide the icon, but to remove it (I actually tried Icon Remover program, but it doesn't work good). I would be glad to hear any sort of ideas, thanks in advance!

You need to kill the thread of the process "explorer.exe" begining with stobject.dll!DllCanUnloadNow with process explorer from sysinternals (Microsoft now).

I renamed C:\windows\system32\batmeter.dll to .bak and it worked. One minus is volume icon can disappear too.
