Refresh/Delete Entries in Notification Icon Area of Control Panel.

Is their a way to clear old entries out of the Notification Icon part of Control Panel?
This is a small thing, I know.
The thing is I don't like having the Icons available for Programs that are no longer on my computer.
Some of them contained Malware.
So, I got rid of them as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, they left small reminders.
Thanks.
