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.

How to remove "Live PC care" program that was installed to my PC without my consent? Thanks a lot


If you are using windows xp then you need to access the Add/Remove programs list. You do this by clicking on your start button and then going to Control panel and then selecting Add/Remove programs and Live PC Care should be located somewhere in that list. You then have the option to unistall it.

If you are using windows vista it's the same thing although it isn't called Add/Remove programs, it's called Programs and Features. This will also bring up the programs you have installed and you can then proceed to remove Live PC care. Good luck. Andrew
