Hello. I've been attempting to clean up my notification area on my Windows Vista 32 bit computer by removing all non-system icons. I don't just want the unwanted icons to be hidden, and would like them to be removed from the notification area entirely. I have used this tutorial and have been successful removing the unwanted icons, but whenever I reboot my computer, it reverts to how it once was. The issue appears to be that two registry keys that I delete, being IconStreams and PastIconStreams, keep reappearing after I reboot and restore all of the unwanted icons. I'm not sure what is causing them to constantly reappear, and I couldn't find any tutorials that addressed how to keep them from reappearing, so any help in permanently removing these keys would be much appreciated!
