    Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me with an issue I'm having with my macbook. The top menu bar has an Icon that I can't seem to get rid off. I know the icon belonged to an anti-virus software I installed a long time ago. When I deleted the application it left the anti virus icon on the menu bar. Does anyone know how to get rid of that? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
    (Holding the command key and dragging the icon doesn't work):confused:

    You may not have completely uninstalled the app.

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    one more question

    Thank you GGJstudios for the suggestion, now because I did this a long time ago, I don't remember the name of the anti-virus software. Do you know of a way I can look at a detailed description of the icons that are on my menu bar?

    What happens, if you click, right-click or Option click on it?

    figured it out



    Nothing happens when you right click on it but I did find a way to delete it finally. :D I had to go into System Preferences, Users & Groups, clicked on my user name, to the right of that screen I clicked on the tab that says Login Items and that's where I found the sneaky little bastard. I was able to right click on it from there, locate the folders and deleted them with extreme prejudice. Thanks for asking though, preciate it.
