Default Re:

In the Nvidia Control Panel, simply click on tools in the menu tree on the left, and uncheck the following...

...Make sure you click apply, then ok. The nvidia taskbar icon should disappear.

I'd assume that unchecking this setting in the Nvidia Control Panel would perform the same operations as if you were manually unchecking the startup items in MSCONFIG...therefore, if unchecking the option in the Nvidia Control Panel does not work, then I wouldn't expect that manually editing the entries in MSCONFIG would have an effect on his machine either.

If this does not work, then there's obviously something wrong. I suggest that you uninstall, then re-install your graphics drivers and try the procedure again.
