    How to remove the icons after uninstal(deleting) gpu-z from notification area?

    What should be a simple thing really is not. Using this workaround is the easiest way I've found to do it if you are running Vista, 7 or 8 OS. It does the hard work for
    you. The icon cache will rebuild itself after rebooting a time or two. Can use CCleaner and check "Notification Icons " under advanced but then you still have to stop and restart explorer.exe. This workaround does it all for you.

    Suggestion to have an option to change Notification Area icon this way too.
    Suggestion to finally have proper separate Options window like most (all?) Windows programs do.

    How to remove the icons after uninstal(deleting) gpu-z from notification area?

    The issue is that there is no mechanism to remove individual icons from that list.

    Only clear the whole list (which is what your VBS script does).

    All programs have the same issue
