    Default Canīt remove Notification Area Taskbar icons of uninstalled programs

    Hi. I have uninstalled Panda Antivirus Pro but when i open settings and check what icons i want to show on taskbar Panda are there + other uninstalled programs.

    I have looked into regedit and my fileexplorer and removed every trace from the programs.

    What to do? I have rebooted of course.

    As you mention registry, if you are comfortable with registry and you know what you are doing then try modifying the registry..else DO NOT.

    Check HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify and look for IconStreams and PastIconsStream and this contains the notification icon cache.

    I'm not sure but to remove this cache, I think there will be small programs like Tray Cache Cleaner or something like that..please check. Or check the free tool from TheWindowsClub if it has got that option.

    Yes, follow the above advice.

    Else CCleaner does it too.
