Subject: Re: System Tray USB Icon

I don't know why anyone would want to hook a printer up via USB when they
have a perfectly good parallel port.
I sure would not want to waist my USB port on a printer which doesn't need
the speed of the USB anyway?
Do you have a parallel cable for your printer?
If so, use that instead of the USB.

Subject: System Tray USB Icon

I have Windows XP Pro, and my printer is hooked up via USB. So I have this
annoying USB icon to 'safely remove hardware.' At no point would I ever want
to remove my printer, so this icon is just annoying and worthless to me. I
do have this icon hidden in the system tray, but I want to remove it
completely. Is there a setting to remove it? A registry hack to remove it?
Or some other way to disable this icon? Thank You.
