How to remove the windows 7 update icon from tray?

I couldn't hide it using customize, can it only go if you disable automatic updates?

Hi cyberdude
If you customize the windows update as "only show notifications" and still it is not hidden, it means that it is in the process of updating. When the update will be installed, it will be back to hidden automatically.

I'd suggest you to not disable automatic updates, only for a system trey icon .

Why would you want an important tray icon hidden is what beats me?

If there are no updates pending as suggested by Archie above this may be useful - Notification Area Icons - Reset
