Problem:

When using a VDI or TS/XenApp environment and you don’t want users to access the VMWare tools you need to hide the icon.

Solution:

Disabling access to VMware Tools in the system tray by setting ShowTray to 0 in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware Tools. This can be done using the GPO preferences or any other Workspace management tool.
