Notification Area Icons - Reset

But you'd have to uninstall the problem app as well, or it will probably show up again in the list.

Yeah, they should, or when you use the programs. You're just resetting them, clearing out old ones.

The best way to control what is showing up in the notifiytion area is to control the startup programs. If you disable all startups (but not the AV) there should be only the bare bones left.

Startup Programs - Change
