Task bar icon notification problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

at start| properties |taskbar |customize (hide
icons,etc.) there are two categories: current items and
past items.
mine is all wacky

i have "always hide" set but three still show up in my
task bar on my far right screen
in past items-there are a number that i longtime ago
removed the programs.
i have them all set to "always hide", except for mail
notification.

how do i fix this miss with regedit?

ps Dell said to do a Repair XP. I tried and didnt make a
darn difference. XP
Repair seems a little drastic. I suspect that an item in
the Registry can be
edited.

    Try this: "How to Clear Past Items from the Notification Area"
    (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283084).
