Now with that being said, in the key "HKEY_ CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify" there are two binary values, IconStreams and PastIconStream.
Modifying the registry can be dangerous (and can render your system unbootable) so it's advisable that you make a backup of the registry before proceeding.
Backing Up Your Registry
1. Go Here and download ERUNTRegistry Modifications
(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed)
2. Install ERUNT by following the prompts
(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
3. Start ERUNT
(either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
4. Choose a location for the backup
(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable)
5. Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
6. Press OK
7. Press YES to create the folder.
