    I am using a MBA on Mojave 10.14.2.

    I installed Malwarebytes for the trial period and then uninstalled it.

    The uninstall process did not remove the icon in the menubar and because of that (I presume) I am getting reminders to update the program. When I click on that icon it says there is no application/search the app store etc.

    Tried reinstalling the program then turning off the menu bar icon but that didn't work. It seems like it is tied to the old uninstalled version. There is no "Malwarebytes" found in spotlight search or Finder.

    Any ideas how to get rid of it?

    Try redownloading it and opening the app bundle by right clicking and choosing Open in the context menu. There may be an uninstaller in there.

    Malwarebytes is quite invasive but it’s nice to have for occasional checks.

    Have you tried dragging the icon to the trash can? Then of course empty the trash ...

    That doesn’t always delete all remnants of an app though.

    If you haven’t already, unhide the hidden folders and files and then try searching for the remnants again.

    True, but the OP was asking about removing the left over icon in the dock. I read the OP's question.
