No I think what eathangle means is if you right click taskbar, properties, and in Notification area bit click the Customize button. I've just checked mine and it lists everything that has ever been in the notification area in living memory. On mine also, several show the wrong icon ??

Brilliant, thanks (although I'd never noticed before but never mind.

earthangle - print out Powerless's link.

To edit the registry, Start, Run, type in


and click the OK button.

Before you do anything, File/Export and save a copy somewhere convenient, like the desktop. If things go wrong you can double clock that to restore things back to where they are.

Then keep clicking on the + signs to expand the folders till you get to the required section. Click on the items to be deleted and press the Delete key. When done, just close (X) the program.

To open Task Manager press CTRL+ALT+DELETE together (once only or you'll reboot your 'puter).

Good luck.
