This seems to occur mainly with Power Macintosh G3 Desktop computers. The cartridge is not ejected far enough from the front of the Zip drive's plastic bezel, and users tend to push the cartridge back into the drive slightly making it almost impossible to remove. This is most likely to occur if you try to remove the cartridge by grasping the top and bottom edges at the same time.

Testing has shown that if you attempt to remove the disk by placing your finger on its bottom edge and pushing up slightly while pulling out, the disk can be removed almost every time.

    MAC question was removed, so somehow I posted to this question instead. Weird. Regarding Iomega Drive issue. FQDN probably required to fix add/remove programs issue though. Good call.

Cant find the add/remove programs in control panel, im using windows 7.. i want to uninstall IE9 and install IE8


Click the start orb in lower left corner of desktop and type "prog" without the quotes. At or near the top of the list of results that comes up will be "Programs and Features". This is what the add/remove control panel section is called in windows 7. Just click that and uninstalling works the same as it did in xp.

No Has Been Able To Solve This Office 2007 Pro Problem, Can You?


Hi,
The problem is the feature you tried istalling might have corrupted the OS. What you can try doing is create new user account first , restart your computer into the new user computer and then try installing. If the same still doesnot work , then my friend the only solution would be to reinstall windows xp and then put office 2007.

Thanks
