    This has appeared in my menu bar, If I click on it a long blank drop down box appears but that's all. Anyone know what it is? Or if it's of concern? upload_2017-11-1_8-2-5.png

    Don't know it, but usually, those types of menu bar items are part of a software install. Stuff like DropBox, OneDrive, various backup software....anything that may work best running as an always-on service. It was likely installed with software, but the question is what.

    The question is what was installed...maybe a demo or something. Could be you trashed the application, but it left this behind. Hard to say what or exactly how to dig it out without knowing what the app was.

    Usually not an issue, but nice to remove all the cruft.

    You should be able to hold down the Command key and drag it off the menu bar...but it would better to know what is running, so you can be sure to fully remove it.

    you could go through all your apps to see if an icon matched if you haven't already done so.
    maybe get this app and it might help https://etrecheck.com/

    Look in your Startup Items, you’ll likely find it there.

    The first icon looks like Deep Freeze for Mac, do you install this app?
