    You can delete notification icons without accessing the registry. This can be done as follows. Click open task bar and select the start button. From the start button, opt for star menu properties. This can be alternatively done by clicking the control panel and then selecting appearance and personalization and then opting for taskbar and start menu. In the notification area tab, to remove to system icons, select the system icon and uncheck the boxes of the icon to be removed. To remove additional icons, click ‘customize’and hide the icons by selecting them and opting for hide from drop down list. Click ‘apply’ and then ok to apply the changes.

    hiii...
    Its simple to do so..
    Simple click the up arrow from tray and click "customize".
    A new window will open with a lot of tray icons and in front of them are written the options for them.
    Choose as per your desire that what icons and notification you want to see and what not to..
    At last click OK.
    And Done!!

    Dear friend,

    You can do this in the following way:
    1. Go to Control Panel> Notification area icons or Click on the up-facing triangle button and then click "Customize".
    2. Now click on "Turn system I can on or off". And your system tray notifications will be disappeared.
    3. You can also select in this window, the programs for which you want to turn off notifications individually and can set their behavior "Hide icon and notifications", individually.

    Thanks!

    To remove an icon from the notification area.

    ->Open task bar and Start menu properties by clicking the start button,clicking control panel, clicking appearance and personalization and then clicking Task bar and Start menu

    ->Click the Notification area tab,and then do one or both of the following:

    *To remove System icons, Under system icons, clear the check boxes of the icons you want to remove.
    *To remove other icons, click customize, click the icon you want to remove, click the drop down list that appears next to the icon, click HIDE and click OK.

    NOTE:
    If you hide a icon, but then see it again the next time you log on to the windows, you might have to uninstall the program to permanently remove the icon.
    Uninstalling the program also permanently remove the program from your computer.

    The removal of notifcation icons can be done using different methods.

    Different versions of windows offers different options to do it, As your Windows Version is not known, you can use the following method to accomplish the task.

    Click Start--Control Panel--Appearance and Personalization--Taskbar and Start Menu,
    there you will find options to hide them.

    In Windows 7 , click on the Arrow icon at the right of the taskbar, beside notifications,
    click Customize, enter the menu and select or deselect notifications from there.

    Save and Exit.
