Sys. tray icons & system resources

Post by George » Tue, 04 Nov 2003 09:30:13


I'd like to know how to delete unwanted systems tray
icons in Win XP Pro, and also how I can check system
resources? Can do both easily on older PC running Win
98, but no clue with XP Pro. Hope this is the right
Newsgroup, and many thanks. George
 
 
 

Sys. tray icons & system resources

Try typing: msconfig on the Start/Run line, then click the Startup tab and
review the applications starting up there with a view to disabling those you
do not want or need. Plus, you can always right click an icon and should
have an option there to close or Exit from the running program.

System Resources can be checked by Ctrl+Alt+Del to open Task Manager and
looking there or downloading some utilities that will allow you to check
them at will (usually by adding another icon to the System Tray). Or review
the information at this site:
