Most of them are probably there from programs running when you start you computer. If they aren't programs you necessarily need running (Firewall, anti-virus), then you can try remove them this way. Go to Start > Run > then type "msconfig" and hit enter. Click the startup tab, and remove some stuff from there that you don't need and is showing up in your tray. If you aren't sure about what some things do, just post them here.
Some of the icons (not all) can be removed by opening up the program in the system tray and go to prefrences or options tab(depending on program) and uncheck load when windows starts or uncheck add icon to system tray. This will depend on the program.
