Windows 7: Deleting an empty launch bar from the taskbar?

Deleting an empty launch bar from the taskbar?

I've attached a Revo Uninstaller shortcut to my taskbar using Bink's method...folder/launch bar. I ahve now found out that I can place the shortcut directly into the taskbar by simply renaming it. It seems that Windows 7 won't let anything with "installer" in its name into the taskbar. Anyway, I have done this and have deleted the icon's original place in the launch bar, BUT I still have the launch bar which takes up unneeded space. So, how can I delete the empty launch bar?

Hello flycaster.



I don't know the tutorial you used but Brink usually adds a way to "un-do" changes in his tutorials, is that not so in the one in question? Link the tutorial here please.

Here's the link: Taskbar Toolbars - Vista Forums
And BTW, you are right, he shows how to delete the toolbar: Right click>toolbar>uncheck
