I already removed and uninstalled the software, its just the status monitor that is left. Its an annoying icon in the task bar.

Also sorry about being not able to keep you guys notified, I had a busy day yesterday, and a busy day today, so if I don't post back trust that i will when i have the time.

That doesn't help me as I want to get rid of the Epson Utility all together, not hide it.

Sorry If I wasn't being clear.
First of allI uninstalled all of the Epson Software, but a piece of software remains, and that is the utility that includes the notification icon. So even after going through the steps to reset the notification icons, the utility is still there, specifically under this folder:
C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3
This folder has the .exe and other items regarding the utility, which is what I want to get rid of.

You could always just boot safemode and delete the file.
Any clean up or scanning tool should be able to clean up the remaining mess, if there is any.
Most likely it will just leave behind a dead registry reference though.
