I once installed a driver for a Xerox Phaser 6110 printer.

Ever since, I have a printer icon in my task bar whenever I restart the computer. Right-clicking it brings up the option to "Exit" which removes it, but I can't find where to remove it, or disable it. It should be noted that this has no effect on printing itself, so I don't really need it.

I've gone over the services, and through msconfig, but have found nothing.

I'd like the icon not to be there when the computer is started.

Never mind, I found it.

  1. Go to Start Menu's "Xerox Phaser 6110" -> "Maintenance".
  2. Run the "Repair" option.
  3. Take care to remove the checkbox from the "Status Monitor" option

Have you checked for the app starting in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup or C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Start Menu\Programs\Startup? Naturally this assumes your default install is on C.

I would have thought you would find this through MSCONFIG but...

Keep in mind they sometimes use some unusual names for the app or service
