Getting rid of the Taskbar?

Does anyone know if there is a way to entirely remove the taskbar? And i mean the whole thing, not just the start button or clock, but the whole kit and kaboodle?

I've tried to manually hide it (setting the height to 0), but on the restart, it always comes back to it's normal position. So i'm stumped...thanks in advance!

Do you want to delete the function or just make it not in the way?

For hiding it you can just grab the top and shrink it to "0" height.

You can set it to autohide by right click and properties.

You can have it stay in the background so other programs will use the full screen under right click and properties.

why would you want to do that ?

I did an extensive search and only found that the best thing to do is adjust the size of it to not show ..

I agree, but to each his/her own. How can you not have a toolbar. Isn't that like driving your car without a steering wheel.
No offense Kramer2k.

You could move it to the top (that where mine is) or even reduce the size in your advanced display settings

I don't know if this will work or not but here is something I found:
Code:
Remove Taskbar from Start Menu
To remove Taskbar from Start Menu so only drag and drop can be used to alter Start Menu and

Desktop. To restrict, apply the following Windows NT Registry hack:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Name: NoSetTaskbar

Type: REG_DWORD

Value: 1
Never mind that is for 2k pro .. Sorry .

Well, i've been looking for sometime now...and the best thing that i have found that removes the taskbar is objectdock. But I find that Yzdock is better than Objectdock, which is why i don't want to use OD. Any thoughts on how to hide the bar w/o using OD?

There should be an option in the preferences to have it do it ..
