    Hello Corey,

    Have you already tried uninstalling them from Programs and Features?

    If so, then you can use the same method below to hide any Control Panel icon you don't want to show.

    Hi there

    I think the control panel items are xxxxx.cpl files - search on those and delete the offending items.

    Cheers
