    Try restarting, if that doesnt work you can hide the shared node. Just go to the finder menu > Preferences > Sidebar > Uncheck the 'Connected Server' & 'Bonjour computers'. Oh yeah, try to right click on the pc and i think there's an option to 'Disconnect'.

    ^ Is that for the ethernet connection? If it is, then there should be an option in network>ethernet that you could uncheck. "Show ____ in menu bar".

    @jappy: Try holding down the command/Apple key; click and hold on the symbol and then drag it off of the menubar. See if that'll work.

    I believe that's the PPPoE status on the menu bar. You can switch it off by going to System Preferences > Network, select the connection you are using, locate the PPPoE setting tab and untick the 'Show PPPoE status in menu bar' box.

    Hope this helps! :D

    I can't see from pic what icon it is. But all icon launchers are in:

    System>Library>CoreServices>Menu Extras

    Look at which *.menu file matches your icon and delete it. You may want to copy it on your desktop as backup. Reboot and the icon will be gone.

    Also look into System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items. It may be launching from there. Delete responsible entry.

    Look for the menu item. Most likely it will have reference to VMware. Then delete it from the Menu Extras folder.

    Look at post #11. Find the .menu item that matches your icon.
