Windows 7: Taskbar>Show Hidden Icons>Customize- old icons still there

Taskbar>Show Hidden Icons>Customize- old icons still there

Taskbar > Show Hidden Icons > Customize > there are some items there by description only (no actual icon next to it) that are from programs that were uninstalled. The drop down for show/hide etc is there for these items. After choosing Hide/No notifications and restarting, these items for uninstalled softwares are still there.

How do I permanently remove items in the Notification Area-customize box for these uninstalled softwares?
