I just bought a new Toshiba laptop and as usual spent the first couple of hours removing all the bloatware - but despite using Revo Uninstaller I am left with half a dozen icons in the notification area of uninstalled programs - how can I remove them without losing the ones I need?

Clearing the "Display icon in notification area" option removes the icon from the notification area, but doesn't affect the underlying program, feature, or process. Users can redisplay the icon from the program's Options dialog box.
