You have to open the programs that put an icon in the system tray and tell it not to. What programs don't you want there? If I have any of them i'll help you find a way to turn the feature off.

Ok, go to Control Panel> System> 'hardware' tab> 'device manager' button> expand 'Network Adapters'> highlight and right click on your adapter and 'disable' it.

This is for deleting all the past items in that notification list...
It's a knowledge base article from Microsoft...

To clear the Past Items list, perform the following steps:

Delete the IconStreams and PastIconsStream values from the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify
Open Task Manager, click the Processes tab, click Explorer.exe , and then click End Process .

In Task Manager, click File , click New Task , type explorer , and then click OK .


Although, I logged off, then back on...instead of restarting explorer.exe

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!
