Windows 7: Hiding "tray icons", even if the small arrow is clicked.

Hiding "tray icons", even if the small arrow is clicked.

Hi. I installed a program that I want to use with my PC (Unified Remote, Connects up your PC and android device), it runs in the background, however, there is a tray icon visible when the small "up arrow" is clicked. I read this and this method only tells me the way it can be removed from the actual "bar" but it will move up to the window that pops up when the arrow is clicked.

Thanks!

Yeah it's shared, I don't want for the application to be able to be closed by persons other than me, because I want to have the control from my phone whenever I need it.

i think if i was using a shared computer i would want to know that it was being / could be controlled remotely from a mobile, and possibly the desktop screen shared with the mobile?

i do hope you have honourable intentions

I will use it good. The thing is the computer has specific "times" on when I want for it to be used, and I can check over the network to check it even if I'm miles away from home and if needed shut it down/close unallowed applications and so on.. The user will know that he might be checked upon.
