Windows 7: How to kill that darn sticky notes icon?

How to kill that darn sticky notes icon?

I know it's Microsofts design to annoy us by having this stupid "gadget's" icon stuck to the task bar, but I would really love to kill it. If anyone can help I'd really be appreciative.

I know there is the windows sticky note taskbar hider program, but sadly after many valiant attempts by the author he still has not been able to get it working with windows 7 64 bit.

I don't need any new features or anything fancy, I just want the program to be open and have no icon on my taskbar. I don't car if it hides in the tray, or is gone completely.

If anyone can think of anything like a registry tweak or resource hack or something... Just let me know. Thanks :)

Thats why I don't use the Windows Sticky Notes :)
You can try using Stickies.
Its free and it has a lot of options and is much much more powerful than the Windows Sticky Notes.
Also it has skin support. Stickies Skins
If you need the same look and feel as Windows Sticky Notes, then you can use this skin
Stickies Skins - Vista Basic

No sticky notes?
Hi, I just developed a need for the sticky note function, but it's nowhere to be found. I searched for sticky, and sticky notes, in the Start menu - nothing. It's not listed on the Windows components list either. I must be the only one without sticky notes!
