Windows 7: Disable, not HIDE, notification icons.

Disable, not HIDE, notification icons.

My question is how do you remove, not hide, notification icons in the notification area? I'm not talking about the icons that you can remove in the properties menu either, like action center. I am talking about icons like the safely remove icon. It gives you the option of show or hide but not disable. I am a neat freak and I like to get rid of the hidden icons all together. I found out how to do it before but I don't remember. It was a system file you have to run but its not regedit. The one I am talking about lets you delete the icon permanantly. Anyone know how to do this?
