Windows 7: Remove Duplicates from System Tray

Remove Duplicates from System Tray

If I select "Customize" in the System Tray, there are two entries for iPoint (Microsoft Intellipoint Mouse Software). I'm pretty sure one of them is a "leftover" from the original version of the software which was automatically removed as part of a Windows Update to the current version of Intellipoint. How do I remove the duplicate?
Control Panel lists only the current version
Revo Uninstaller doesn't list either version
Start/Programs lists only the current version

So, how do I get rid of it?

It's not a big deal, just an annoyance.

Thanks pbcopter. That worked. The .bat file did not work as expected (just stopped after "operation completed successfully", but I was able to close the window, press <CTRL><ALT><DEL> and restart the PC from there. When it rebooted, everything was reset properly.
