Windows 7: Cannot get rid of Notriciation Area items

Cannot get rid of Notriciation Area items

Hello:

I had installed these, but have now uninstalled all Dropbox/Dropbox.exe and SkyDrive/SkyDrive.exe (OneDrive/OneDrive.exe) on my computer (Win 7 Ultimate, 64-bit), and cleaned the registry (for the last hour :-( from every trace of these items. Still, don't you think I have the following in the Notification Area Icons:

Dropbox.exe
Dropbox 2.0.26 Downliading file list...Can't establish secure connection. Uploading 1 file...

SkyDrive.exe
OneDrive - Closing

Where in the world do these items come from? How come they do not disappear?

I would be most grateful for an explanation and possible way to get rid of them.

Thanks,

Hans L

Derek, that .bat file to care of it. And it also got rid of my second Norton Internet Security icon (which I could *not* get rid of earlier by manually deleting the two files that the .bat file deleted).

Thank you!
