#273: Too much in system tray

I was working with a guy via screenshare at work today and saw his desktop and it reminded me of an annoyance I have with people that allow so much crap to accumulate in their system tray. At a minimum, you should get rid of the icon, but also, a lot of the crap shouldn't even be running in the background all the time, wasting resources. People need to take control of their PC and not let stuff invade their system tray. Severity: 3

Oh god that bugs the hell out of me too. People: Always choose "custom install" and click "no" on as many things as possible. A related annoyance of mine is the programs that do this kind of thing in the first place. Real Player and Quicktime are among the worst
