    Hi Smokey, try the following that I found on another forum:-

    When you see the icon appear, launch Activity Monitor and search through "All Processes" (select this from the pull-down menu) for anything with the name of the application in it and "Force Quit" it. This should have the effect of removing the status icon. If this works then using Spotlight, try searching your Hard Drive for anything containing the applications name along with the name of the process that you may/may not have noticed in Activity Monitor.

    I hope this helps. The other option is to re-install the app, and then un-install it using something like App-Cleaner (it's free) and this will remove all associated files for that app as well.

    Jason
