    Drag them to the trash or right-click and choose remove from Dock.

    just drag 'em off the sidebar and they'll disappear with a poof.

    Dragging it off doesn't work, it just makes the little menu come down.

    I mean finder bar not the dock.

    You mean the menu bar at the top of the screen? If so, you will have to locate the program that adds the icon there and disable it.

    Are you talking about removing something from the finder sidebar like where I have the quicktime app? If so, right click it and hit remove from sidebar.

    hold the cmd (⌘) key, then drag the icon off the menu bar.
