    Hello,

    I had to install RayV and now that I do not need it I would like to get rid of it. I removed it under system preferences at the bottom but I cannot seem to get rid of the icon on the menu bar. I cannot drag it out and am stumped at what to do. I even manually removed the plugins from the library. Any help?

    For some menu extra icons, you can hold down the Command key and simply drag (or re-arrange) them off the menu bar.

    try that

    RayV Icon in Menu Bar

    I was FINALLY able to remove the RayV agent icon in my menu bar by going to:

    System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items

    I highlighted RayV and hit the minus sign- and poof. Gone!

    Does anyone have any other fixes for this? I have tried checking in Login Items and it is empty. Having trouble removing Hands Off! from the menu bar using cmd key - it just comes up with a greyed out circle with a line through it. thanks!

    Go back to the default settings. Remove com.apple.systemuiserver.plist and Restart. (ui = user interface, this is where menu settings reside)

    You probably did not uninstall it completely. I suggest you reinstall it and follow their instructions: https://www.oneperiodic.com/products/handsoff/faq.html#faq2. No offence to Gregg2, but I suggest you make sure that the app is completely uninstalled before you start deleting other configuration files.

    No offense taken, but it's usually harmless to delete a plist file.
