cleaning up the Control Panel shortcuts

Icons from uninstalled programs stay in the control panel!
Is their any way i can take that out? I tried installing it again and then uninstalling it. It still stays in the Control Panel window.

Move, delete, or rename the Main.cpl file in the Windows\System folder.
After you do so, extract a new copy of the Main.cpl file from your
original Windows 95 disks or CD-ROM.

I assume you know how to use the extract utility to get the file off of the CD-rom back to you hard drive in an uncompressed format.

I don't suggest tweak anything because I never know who I am making the suggestion to.  Making such a suggestion to a novice user could set them up for more trouble than they originally had.  This is only my opinion, you are free to suggest it. I feel I have given him/her the most direct, and easiest solution available.

I suggest going and downloading MS Power Toys and using TweakUI. I have it and just look through the tabs and eventually you find find a tab that allows to get rid of those uninstall icons.
I have done that my self. It is very simple.
