That item is the VMWare fusion menu bar icon.

The vendor has this article and steps to allow you to disable and configure it.

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1015330

To modify the behavior of this feature:

  1. Go to Virtual Machine > Settings.
  2. Click Application Menu (Applications in Fusion 3).
  3. Click the Applications Menu tab if using Fusion 3.
  4. From the Show applications menu in menu bar drop-down, choose Always, Never, or Only when Fusion is running.

thanks @bmike♦ and @J Novack –  seoppc Mar 27 '13 at 21:05

That's the VMware Fusion icon.

  1. Click it.
  2. Select "Application Menu Settings...".
  3. Modify the dropdown next to "Show Applications menu in menu bar" to be "Never".

Nice! I didn't realize you could control it from the icon as well. My guess is the OP has a partial install and the icon could be malfunctioning. We'll see if they need uninstall help or just pointing to the right software is all they need to solve this. –  bmike Mar 27 '13 at 20:49
    
unfortunately, this doesn't work if the VM was deleted. –  Sarge Borsch Nov 27 at 8:41

spotlight -> activity monitor -> search for fusion -> kill the process
