    hiding inte/ and nvidia grahics tray icons`

    Hi
    Our school network has a large number of machines running Intel integrated graphics from intel 845 through to latest chipset. With driver installed, a system tray icon appears which permits user to change various graphics properties....this is a pain in the backside. Is there a way to stop this tray icon from appearing on machines without going to extremes of registry hacking etc?? We are running a Server 2003R2 network. Thanks heaps for your time. Cheers

    Had that this month mate with the 250 new machines we setup over the summer.
    There's a simple fix for the intels: rename c:\windows\system32\igfxsvc.dll and nothing will show up, you just get the standard windows controls with no side-effects. Just get a script to run at machine startup.
    Don't know for the nvidias but i'd assume there's a similar fix.

    I would take a look in the registry at:
    >HKLM> Software> Micrsoft> Windows> Current Version> Run.
    This is the key controls what runs for all users at log on I would then use a script to edit this key.
