I installed a few apps yahoo IM for example. It installed a taskbar notification icon, but when I deleted the application and rebooted it still shows a choice in the Customized section of the Notification Area in the Menu.
I found a fix for this, not sure if its the best way but it works! SO I hope some of you will enjoy this!
Be Warened you need to regedit!
#1. Regedit to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify
#2. Delete the entries for IconStreams and PastIconsStream. (close Regedit)
#3. CTRL + ALT + DEL Start taskmanger Find Explorer in the Processes tab and end the task
#4. While in Task Manager click file, New Task (RUN) and type explorer
#6. Your GHOST icons should be gone now, however your customized settings will also be gone so you will need to change them again.
Thanks for the fix.Worked like a charm got rid of at least 6 of them lil buggers
