some hardware ( i think NICs) place an icon in the systray to "safely remove hardware". Is there any way to get rid of this icon without losing that piece of hardware?

Thanks!

I haven't heard of a way to get rid of the icon completely. What you could do, though, is to set it to "Always Hide"
Right-click the notification area, and select Properties. Under the Notification area heading, click Customize. Find the Safely Remove Hardware icon and select "Always hide" in the Behavior column next to it.

what if you don't use the "hide inactive" option? The customize option is greyed out.

If this is what i think it is it's for your ntl modem.you can get rid of it by installing the new drivers for your modem.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
