    Remove Old Notification Icons In Windows 7
    It should also work in Windows 8.

    Or you can download the script here.

    You can also use the Registry Editor. Press the Windows key+R and type regedit in the Run box that appears.
    Back up the Registry or create a Restore Point.
    Under the Edit tab, use Find and Find Next to track down and remove any left overs relating to SpeedyPC. Be careful as removing the wrong keys can brick your PC (hence the need for a back up of the Registry in case you do).

    This worked for me:

    @echo off
    cls
    set regPath=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify
    set regKey1=IconStreams
    set regKey2=PastIconsStream

    echo The Explorer process must be killed to reset the Notification Area Icons Cache.
    echo Please SAVE ALL OPEN WORK before continuing
    echo.
    pause

    echo.
    taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
    echo.
    FOR /F "tokens=*" %%a in ('Reg Query "%regpath%" /v %regkey1% ^| find /i "%regkey1%"') do goto iconstreams
    echo Registry key "IconStreams" already deleted.
    echo.

    :verify-PastIconsStream
    FOR /F "tokens=*" %%a in ('Reg Query "%regpath%" /v %regkey2% ^| find /i "%regkey2%"') do goto PastIconsStream
    echo Registry key "PastIconsStream" already deleted.
    echo.
    goto confirm-restart

    :iconstreams
    reg delete "%regpath%" /f /v "%regkey1%"
    goto verify-PastIconsStream

    :PastIconsStream
    reg delete "%regpath%" /f /v "%regkey2%"

    :confirm-restart
    echo.
    echo Windows must be restarted to finish resetting the Notification Area Icons.
    echo.
    echo Restart now? (Y/N) and press Enter:
    set /p choice=
    If %choice% == y goto restart
    echo.
    echo Restart aborted...please close this window
    explorer.exe

    :restart
    shutdown /r /t 0
    exit

    Run it as a batchfile.

    I've moved the new regedit thread into the existing thread.

    In Windows 8, the registry keys look like this:

    TrayIcon.PNG

    Note the bottom of the image contains the path to the TrayIcon key in regedit. The same information from the link CLiNT supplied applys. Follow those instructions to eliminate old notifications/icons.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Slightly off topic.

    Chuck, there is no need to apologise for asking questions, it's why this forum exists.

    cheers, Paul

    It isn't HKEY_Local_Machine. It's

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify.

    The two specific sub-keys in TrayNotify are IconStreams and PastIconStreams. Follow the instructions from the link CLiNT posted.
