    Is there a way to permanent way to remove icons from the menu bar. I know how to do this with cmd + drag away. But after a reboot they come back and it's bugging me.

    Cardsymbol
    Ejectsymbol
    etc

    Regards
    Daniel

    The eject symbol re-appears every time you connect a USB CD/DVD drive. As for the Card symbol I just uninstalled the card reader drivers as I don't use any cards with my aspire one (the only memory card I have is my w810's and I have the dc60 cable for it so I don't need to take the card out the cellphone) and the Power off something kept re-appearing on the menubar which really pissed me off because it looked ugly there. As long as you have the card drivers it won't desappear because the kext loads at the startup telling it to be on the menubar.

    Unfortunately i use the SD-Card reader. So isn't there any way to get these icon to disappear for good without uninstall drivers and stuff ?

    Yes there is a way. Open terminal, type sudo -s ........ then enter your password. Then type cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/ and press enter. Then whatever menu item you want to remove type
    (for example if i want to remove PPP.menu)

    "mv PPP.menu /"

    This moves the menu item to the root of your hard drive. Now open activity monitor and quit "System UI Server"

    it will no longer be in ure menu bar :)
