I believe you just remove the Timbuktu section from \Library\StartupItems and reboot.

This is correct. You have to remove the startup extension to get rid of the menu bar icon. Of course, if you run the application, it is going to reinstall the statup extension every time.

Third party remote computer control software. Not an issue unless you bought and use it. More info here.
