The Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software is not capable of disabling the Notification and Tray icons by itself.
You can actually use Intel® PROSet/Wireless Advanced Enterprise Software to manage your Wireless connections, but it will work together with Windows Network management.
Even if the Enterprise software is installed, you will still have the standard Network icon in the tray, as seen in the following picture:
This may be a problem in the Operating System, however, you can discard any issue from the perspective of the Intel driver, and at the same time, install the Enterprise package to check if it will let you manage the wireless connections by following these steps:
- Download Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for IT Administrators, version 17.14.0 (latest as of 3/30/2015). Select the file according to your version of Windows 7.
- Go to Windows Programs, and Uninstall Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software Drivers if it is already installed.
- Go to Windows Device Manager - Network Adapters, right click on the AC 7260 and Uninstall it, make sure to mark the option "Delete the driver software for this device".
- Reboot you computer, then run the installer of the IT Administrator package you downloaded before, select the option to "Customize" and make sure to install the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Advanced Enterprise Software.

Thank you for the rapid and detailed answer.
I followed your instructions and I can confirm that the Intel ProSET software allows me to see, select and connect to the different wireless networks. It doesn't solve the Windows issue, as you expected, but it is at least a good temporary fix.
