I can't seem to find a way to clear the list of "Notification Area Icons" in Windows 7. Unfortunately I had installed a download manager (GetRight) which by default creates a tray icon for each download. I quickly disabled this but still have a ton of entries in that menu and it's annoying.
I found an article that had me navigate to this key in the registry…
delete IconStreams and PastIconStreams, then restart, but it did not clear the list.
Any ideas on this one?
