Hey

I have 2 questions about system prefs' in MacosX
How do i remove an icon i no longer use?
I tried out one of the midi keyboards at our college however i now use a different one but the icon remains... clicking on it only results in it asking me to connect the keyboard.

Universal - The icon for this has gone strange, it now just looks liek a switch with a strange box around it... again any help is appreciated

To remove 3rd party system preferences, just right / ctrl click the icon and select 'remove preference pane'.

As for the wonky icon, try repairing permissions?

Can you not just drag the icon to the trash? Don't know about the universal thing.....do you mean Universal Access?
