I've been trying to disable the event toaster tray icon for some time now.

There is the Tools/Options dialog where you can uncheck the check-box, but that will only disables the notifications, the annoying tray-icon remaining there.

So, I asked Aaron Marten on his blog how to completely disable the damn thing. And here's the answer:

Delete the package registration only for the event toaster by running the following command:
"reg delete HLKM\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Packages\{139f0cf3-9b20-44cc-861c-420d7a396b57}"
