Uninstall windows mail from windows 7

Hi all, I have installed windows mail on my windows 7 and worked great!
Now i have reversed the procedure to unistall windows mail from windows 7 and reinstalled the windows 7 mail folder to get it back to original, that also worked great.
BUT I had put a windows mail short cut on my desktop which was still there.
I opened it and BAM i was receiving emails through windows mail (which I did not want to happen).
I deleted the short cut.
Now there is a windows mail icon on bottom right corner of screen that I cannot open or delete or anything.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Welcome darcim, Are you talking about the notification area?
Here's a tutorial that might help, also look at related links on this page,
Notification Area Icons - Hide or Show System Icons and Notifications[2]=Taskbar Start Menu

Here's another,

Hi and yes the task bar at bottom right screen, i checked out the links you said, but cannot hide the mail icon and why is it still able to down load my emails when i have removed windows mail from windows 7 ?
Would i have to delete it from the registry

No I did it manually by right click properties and took over permissions etc.
Lol looks like I did it the hard way!

Oh well you did it anyway.

It sure sounds like you haven't uninstalled it. How about if you uninstall it and don't put the other one back yet, Then run CCleaner to clean it up on the registry tab, If you don't have it here's the link CCleaner - Home then restart. and see if that gets rid of it.
