Remove Old Notification Icons In Windows 7

Here is how you can remove old notification icons from the Windows 7 system tray.

* Press [Windows R], type [regedit] and hit [enter]
* Navigate to the Registry key HKCU \Software \Classes \LocalSettings \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \TrayNotify
* Make a backup of the Registry key by right-clicking on TrayNotify and selecting Export.
* Now delete the following two Registry keys: IconStreams and PastIconsStream
* Open the Windows Task Manager with [Ctrl Shift Esc]
* Terminate the explorer.exe process
* Click on File > New Task Run and enter explorer.exe to reload the explorer process
after i used cc cleaner and pc tools registry this comes out my problem..

Hello Hitomihot, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and merging the folder option in the list of the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default associations of folders including the icon to hopefully fix this for you.

Hitomihot,

Well, so much for the easier route. You could also do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to hopefully fix it afterwards.

My guess is that it may have been the registry cleaner that you used that caused it. Registry cleaning programs usually cause more problems than what little they may help with since folks do not double check what is to be deleted before allowing it to be deleted.
