    Hey guys im new to mac and need some help...

    I just installed norton antivirus for my mac and the software accidentally created duplicate icons in the top right control panel. I am wanting to delete one of these but haven't been successful.

    I already tried the command and drag off but they don't move, they are stuck there.

    Any remedies to this? How can i get them off the top right control panel?

    Thanks.

    So you tried Command-Dragging off of the Menu Bar and it didn't work? Try looking around the program's preferences (or System Preferences) and look for a box that says "Show icon in Menu Bar" or something like that and uncheck it.

    Yeah the command dragging off didnt work.

    I just looked through the applications preferences and its not looking like there is any option to take icon off of menu bar.
