    I recently downloaded and installed iStat from Bjango onto my new i7 Hi-Res MBP, without realizing that Apple has developed an iStat widget.

    As a result, I did an uninstall of of the iStat using appzapper. After the uninstall however, the iStat graphs were still displayed near the bluetooth icon and wireless signal icon. There is a 2 week grace period which allows you to run the demo. I anticipated, that the app would remove itself after the demo expired, but instead of removing itself, the graph dialogue boxes still remains with exclamation points in them to ask you to register or buy the program. Right-clicking shows these options.

    It's kind of annoying to look at those 6 boxes. Is there anyway to remove them without doing a complete re-install of the OS? BTW, the app is great, but this MBP ran my wallet dry for at least a few months.

    Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

    Hold the Command key and drag them off the Menu Bar.

    Thanks a bunch. It worked! That's an option I didn't know. Learn something new everyday with this OS.

    What's your paypal? I can forward you a few bucks for helping me.

    LOL. This isn't a pay-for-help site. If you want to contribute to the site (which is a great idea) click here.

    Not sure if I can help there, since I'm sort of new to MAC, but I've converted my entire family over to Apple products if that helps. I was a hardnosed PC user and puked at the sight of the Apple Logo. Went in one day to Best Buy, messed around with the OS, found it appealing, went online and was the owner of a late 2009 15" CTO 3.06 ghz MBP. Since December of 09, we've purchased 11 Mac's. Everyone supports an iPhone, and I'm purchasing a 32GB wi-fi + 3g iPad as well as a base 13" MBP tomorrow.

    I'm an Apple whore and spreading my virus.

    Me Toooo

    I didnt feel like waiting. Its kinda neat app, but the widget realy gave me all I needed. Ive been Appleholic since Summer 2008. Put Ubuntu on my win Desktop...got me an ipad, iphone and macbook. I had a few withdrawel symtoms..like I miss irfanview.....bt I got over it.haha. I dont miss wiping my hard drive clean, reinstalling everything I own, running worthless malware programs that dont do what they advertise. I have never formatted my MAc, never had to reinstall my OS. This may sound odd to longtime apple users, but Windows people know what Im talkin' about.

    Don't drag them across the Menu Bar. Drag them down off of it and let go.
