    I want to create a file that will delete the following registry entry when I desire.
    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify\IconStreams
    Can someone make one for me to accomplish this? Would it be a .bat file or a .reg file to do this? Thanks.

    Can be CMD or REG:
    CMD:
    Code:
    @echo off
    reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify\IconStreams" /f
    exit
    
    REG:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify\IconStreams]

    "Notification Area - Remove Past Icons from List" . If you have items in Past Items that are have long ago been removed from the system and want to remove them from the list.

    As you like. I tend to name them CMD so would use something like iconstreamsdelete.cmd.

    Make sure 'hide extensions for known file types' is disabled in Folder Options to not create file.cmd.txt.

    Them scripts don't remove the registry entry that I show path too. Can you take a look at the path and determine why?

    You may be administrator, but it doesn't mean the same, what the command "Run as administrator" means.
    Why You don't use for this for example CCleaner?
