Notification Area Icons - Deleting?

When your in the Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons window...When you un-install a program the icon notification always stays in that window...like when taking off an antivirus for example.

Go to search> type notification. Then adjust the ones not wanted. It can be set to show only when running, so in effect it is gone.

You probably can but would need done in the Registry.

Thats what I was going to say, you would have to change the registry, I would suggest that you do not.

Hello KCINREBOK,

Resetting the notification area will remove the old uninstalled programs and items in there for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I forgot about that, aint had to do it in Win 7 as I do not use it as much and its not the same set up as Vista and previous Windows.

I do however do that in Vista every once in a while along with the clean up Sidebar tweak too.
