Automatically hide Icons?

Recommended Posts


Hi, Is there a way to automatically hide all desktop icons via autoit? One way i come up with is to do it with registry key but most of the one i found requires the reboot of explorer.exe which does not work because i want to avoid the reload/killing of explorer.exe if possible(does killing explorer.exe do any harm? caz everytime my explorer.exe crashed on me and auto reload itself it takes a while; also i have noticed not all trayicons were restored.) Reason for this code was that I am planning on making a program which locks the pc and can be restore only with teh correct password. And i wanted to hide the icons so no1 can touch/modify anything while the pc is locked. And need some help... anywyas Thanks for the help in advance
