This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Can you add a screenshot to show what you want to remove - also the version of ubuntu would be useful. – fossfreedom Dec 30 '11 at 13:14
I have added a screenshot showing the icons docked on the left. they are too annoying for the eyes. i only need the terminal to work with. – KMC Dec 31 '11 at 2:08

You could install the compiz config manager, and autohide the bar (settings are in the unity section).

Alternatively you could install and use the classic gnome desktop.
