Windows 7 notification area settings are locked

Apologies for the seemingly obvious question but my googlefu is failing me.

In order to allow users to customise the notification area (because why wouldn't we?), we need to add the allowed executable, applet, mmc, whatever it is to be allowed on our Group Policy. Unfortunately I can't find quite what needs to be added.

Can anyone help?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

(Not conclusive maybe, but could point you in the right direction.)

You can find it in the registry at HKCU\Software\Classes\LocalSettings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

CCleaner refers to it as Tray Notification Cache.

As far as I can see, the executables involved are %windir%\system32\dllhost.exe and explorer.exe.

Possibly related: that control panel applet can be started from the command line with
control.exe /name Microsoft.NotificationAreaIcons.
