    Hello bayustev,

    Using the tutorial below to reset the notification area icons should be able to remove the old uninstalled programs.

    Are all the black icons for uninstalled programs?

    As a test, see if installing and uninstalling one of these programs again may sort it if there was an issue the last time it was uninstalled.

    Yep, something is not right. I'm just not sure what yet.

    Similar problem here...


    I can't seem to get rid of the 2 items shown on the attached image.

    I ran the .bat file without success...there doesn't seem to be any record of either Program in the registry either.

    Any further suggestions, please?

    I have also tried this and I have one entry I can't remove. I can't find it in the registry at all. I have ran this bat file and rebooted but it still remains. No idea how to remove it.

    Running this below as a .bat file will reset and clear the Show notifications from these apps list. The list will automatically repopulate as apps provide notifications next.

    However, this will also break the live tiles of apps on Start.


    Code:
    @echo off
    
    :: To reset and clear Notifications & actions "Show notifications from these apps"
    Reg Delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v AppDB /F
    
    
    :: To kill and restart explorer
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
    start explorer.exe
