You can edit it using Reshack and replace with the original one. I'm just saying but it might be risky.

Thanks for all your help. Your a champ!

The Take_Ownership wouldn't work on my account so I went into the administrator account (activate by typing:

net user administrator /active:yes

into cmd that you ran as administator.

Next I tried to replace the .dll with my .dll with one icon gone (7 icons total I think) then I restarted and found it was still there. So instead of trying again I decided to rename ntshrui.dll to ntshrui.dll.bak so that its not there. Worked perfectly, network is still running no icon.

Only downside is that you don't have the lock icon and some others(which are useless in my opinion)

What I did was a workaround but the fix would be to remove the single icon via Reshack.

Thanks again!
