    I created another user account which I later decided to delete. However, since creating the additional account, my name is present in the toolbar inbetween the clock and the spotlight logo.

    Its annoying and I can't seem to remove it.

    Hold down Command while dragging it off the menu bar.

    In Accounts preferences (10.6 and earlier) or Users & Groups preferences (10.7), unlock the preference pane, go to Login Options under the list of accounts on the left, and uncheck "Show fast user switching menu"
