On a fresh OS install we end up needing to make a number of tweaks and changes to the OS setup before we would be comfortable with deploying the box or VM into production.
So, out of the box we have that speaker icon showing in the System Tray.

So, to eliminate that speaker icon we do the following:
- Right click on the Task Bar and left click on Properties.
