I have uninstalled my ISDN software but I still have an icon in the system tray - how can I delete this?

Add & remove programmes and also in the programmes menus in the desktop, if yes and if you hover your mouse over the icon in the sys tray whats the name of the icon.

I have removed the software in add/remove programes and I can't see it in the programes list. When I hover over the icon it says ISDN Monitor V3

Make a System Restore point first, then go into the Registry (type regedit in the Run command box via Start menu). Use the Edit, Find command to search for strings containing any references to the ISDN router and delete them. Take care with the Registry, hence the Restore Point.

Click start, run type:

msconfig

Click OK.

Click Startup and remove the tick next to this application.

I've tried deleting through msconfig but I can't seem to identify the name. Nothing looks like it. I'm a bit nervous about editing the registry. I've searched for any reference to ISDN and there are loads. The System Restore point doesn't always work on my computer, I have been told this is a common fault with Windows ME (but that's another story).

post what you see in msconfig.

There are about 30 is there a quick way of listing them?
