    Can't delete past tray icons

    I'm trying to delete past icons in system tray but I'm having trouble. I've done it before by deleting the iconstreams in the registry but it doesn't seem to work anymore. I've done a search in the registry but can't find the traynotify or any iconstreams folder in current user\software\microsoft\windows\current version. I also tried creating a TrayNotify folder hoping they would magically appear...but that failed. Please help!
