I cannot delete an icon from my menu bar. If I click the command button and drag it off of the menu bar, it shows a circle with a line through it, which is an indicator to me that this action is not possible. It is from the Malwarebytes program which I deleted, and the program is definitely no longer functioning. Is there another method of removing this icon?

If you moved to trash for deleting the app and the icon is still sticked in menu bar;

Go to > Activity Monitor -> Search for FrontendAgent and double click on it click Open Files and Ports tab.

You ll see the Malwarebytes source path like /Library/Application Support/Malwarebytes/ Open the terminal:

sudo rm -rf /Library/Application\ Support/Malwarebytes/ replace this path with have you seen in Activity monitor screen if not the same one and run the command.

Then Quit the job from activity monitor.

Thats all.

Only first-party menu bar apps can be ⌘-dragged off the menu bar. To remove third-party menu bar apps, you should refer to the specific app settings. For Malwarebytes, you can turn off the menu bar app from Malwarebytes preferences → Hide application icon. To properly uninstall Malwarebytes if you no longer want the software, open Malwarebytes, and go to "help" > "uninstall Malwarebytes".
