How do I remove items on taskbar "customize" menu?

OK, I know how to show or hide icons in the system tray, but it seems
that once items are listed in the system tray customize menu, they are
there forever, even if the program is closed or uninstalled. How can I
edit this list?

Yes. I would never post such a fix without trying it, first. Explorer
will re-initialize entries for currently active programs.

Yes it does clear everything, but it repopulates the active ones. Also
you'll have to reset your preferences on which ones you want showing
after doing this.

Why? Not arguing. Honest question. I have heard differing opinions.

Because, depending on how one's system is set up, it can start a new thread
disconnected from the previous one.

It is a practice frequently resorted to by trolls, who, if they disagree with
something the previous poster has said, change the subject line to something
like "<Previous poster's name> is an idiot".

I have my reader set up to treat that as a different thread, which I can then
ignore.

If, however, you really ARE changing the subject, by all means use a new
subject line.

Like me, in this case. When I open a group, I only show new posts, so
this appeared to me to be a new thread. It would only be if I chose to
show old messages that I would see that this is a continuation of an
existing thread. And with an uninformative subject like "Solution
found," I'd tend to ignore it.

Perhaps a good way to handle it would be to append to the original
subject, as in Re: How do I remove items on taskbar "customize"
menu? - Solution found

One way of doing it is to say "Solution found (was: How do I remove...)"

The problem with that is that inevitably someone changes the subject line to
leave out the "was" part, thus starting a third thread.

As I didn't read the original thread, I had no idea what problem the
"solution" was supposed to solve. I read this thread because I thought it
might be a solution to the probem of copying liles across a network, only to
find that it wasn't.

Because in the future when someone goes to search for the problem,
depending on some esoteric details an article with a different
subject line may not come up.

You could use the original subject line and put SOLUTION at the end.

The best way is not to alter the subject heading but to reply to the
original post, bottom posting. First line in the body should be
SOLUTION FOUND:
Then in the second line the explanation.
That way the reported problem and solution is in the same message body.

Okay. I'm convinced. I will mend my ways.

Why? Decent newsreader software copes fine so long as references: aren't
b0rked by something else (e.g Google groups).
