How to permanently hide a hidden system tray icon in Windows 7?

I have a few applications that are left working in the background, and I rarely open them.

However, I don't want to display them on my system. The applications are set to 'Hide icons and notifications' within the notification settings, but they're visible with other inactive icons as you can see here.

I want to remove the icon from there as well so that the icon won't appear anymore, but that's also working in the background. How can I do this? Is there a solution or some kind of workaround?
