    I like to keep my computer clean and I noticed when you click the toolbar -> properties -> customize... -> past items there is a lot of stuff there. How do I get rid of all the stuff in there? Thanks...

    Hi KeithKman,

    Go to your registry and delete these two values
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify
    "IconStreams" and "PastIconsStream"
    then open task manager, end explorer.exe process, then new task explorer.
