View Full Version : Cant remove menubar icon!!!

Sep 16, 2012, 05:59 AM
I have a 2011 MBP running ML and I installed some Adobe products and uninstalled them but have been left with an icon in the menu bar that I cant remove because the cursor changes to the loading circle.

Please can some one tell me how I can find the location of this icon to remove it permanently.

Screen shot below.

Incase your unsure, its the icon on the left.

What happens if you hold down the CMD key while dragging it off?

Btw, it is the Adobe Update icon.

I cant do anything as the cursor changes to the loading symbol straight away so the CMD key has no affect.

Ill take a look at what you posted and let you know.

look in the utilities folder for an adobe folder, there might be an app still there.
and look in sys prefs, see if there's something in the login items...(and remove it if)...
