Hey everyone,
So, I played with iChat a little, but don't intend to use it. Now, however, there is an iChat icon on the top bar next to the volume icon. How do I get rid of the iChat icon? ideas?

Go into iChat, click on iChat in the menu bar, click on preferences, click on Accounts, uncheck the box that says "Show status in menu bar", close iChat.

Solution

Open iChat. Go to Prefrences and there is a check box that says "Show Status in Menubar." Click that and you're set.
