More to the point
Why didn't he mention that he had Iomega software installed, which is second only to Norton Utilities in overall bletcherousness.

Funny you should mention..
Just downloaded latest ZIP stuff - for both rel. modrin new machines. Both 'installs' thought.. they had finished the install. But no icons in tray nor desktop. Neither of the two .exe files in the directories will execute (ToolApp.exe or imgstart.exe). Uninstall/reinstall ditto for 3 tries on 2 machines.
2 machines working well in any respect I can measure, clean OS installs. No workeee BUT: it does in fact talk to the drive, runs OK HD to ZIP; molasses vice versa. Just no - format or write-prot or test, etc. (Older version on laptop OK)
Sent little note to their tech support..
So then re Norton - save for the DOS couple of maybe still useful utilities - where did they go wrongest? (ignoring the Disneyland animations you can turn off) Seems to me that N. hasn't saved anyone I know, from any problem, in last 4 years. Are the Rix Utils the only good stuff left?
(Hope the bloody latest Ghost doesn't have some surprises, next)
Of course to do that, I'd have to find it first.
By time I get a computer to fix it's been worked on by "experts" for years. This failed zip install attempt probably happened 4 or 5 years ago (Pentium-S 75-MHz).
Gaaah, a Pentium *WHAT*?
Man, it'd be more cost-effective to just by a new machine than to put any time into that thing. Damn, they must have really need that box for some reason.
This is my sig. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
