Hmmm.... never thought of hiding it. It may have to do for now.

It's the simplest and safest way.

And, as I mentioned, there's more options than just hiding it.

You're better off using the Task Bar Properties. Windows has APIs to interact with programs that manage their own functions on the TB. Changing the Registry could cause other problems. Major problems! The process is more suited for single user stations anyway.

Each user account can have their own customizations in this way (removing programs you don't want from the start menu and taskbar. To completely remove the taskbar for a single user account is a bit hard to do. You can choose either a limited or administrative account (if limited, you may be asked for administrator password when you remove certain programs from start menu). limited account (without administrative password) could be prevented from adding anything else to the start menu

Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.
