Q: Is it possible to completely remove BOINC icon from system tray to prevent others to mess with it, and let the BOINC do its work in background, totally invisible?

A: Yes. You can install BOINC as a service and not allow Boinc Manager to load on Wndows start up. This way BOINC always runs, even when no one is logged in on the computer.
