Windows 7: Remove icons from Windows

19 Jan 2015   #11

Windows 7 - Home Edition - Build 7601x8086

Absolutely agree lol, lost all safe mode and logon functionality the last time. Had to use the ram disk to restore operations. Is all fixed now using the library refrences from WHS and the transparency concept from Doc.

Thank you for being the guinea pig - know we know that we can't just remove the icons. Cheers!

No problem I think it's also worth a mention that during this process that I received an error message that an unauthorized change occurred to the operating sytem and that Microsoft validation would no longer be available. I now receive error on explorer, and any Microsoft program lost of functionality will occur soon, as windows is not genuine. This is now greyed out from properties menu and slui will not run. Parameter 3 runs though returns an error code. Have to call them for resolve. So yeah I would refrain from trying that. In the personlization interface there are ways to make them as small as a character, find that dependency and I am sure you can reduce to the point of looking like a dot or completely without modifying files to that extent attempted.
