Previously I have used an Iomega 250 MB External ZIP on this CP-5300US and have uninstalled it from A/R.

In a search today I found the following, and am posting this for examination as I am thinking dependencies,i.e. drives and programs especially since there is a Registry Key question. I would like to delete all un-necessary files since I have a variety of BSOD shutdown discriptions. so, your advice will be appreciated.

Iomega application services is running in msconfig.

The following is a pretty thorough picture of what the file has yielded, there is mor than is shown in the uninstall text.

I want to get rid of this stuff !

Should I go to the Registry and make changes ?

Where do I get started ?, I have already Removed this from A/R .

But these files apparently still exist, I have seen this before with AOL, and cleaned it out, but with this I have noticed the Registry Keys, that might have been the case with AOL< I'll go back and look.

What is happening that makes you think that cleaning the registry will help or solve your "variety of BSOD shutdown discriptions"?

Looks like an improper or failed uninstall to me
Iomega Zip drives are basically a dead issue.

Is this internal, parallel or USB?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Dead Issue, please explain, These are a bunch of files I don't use for one thing they must be taking up space.

Those aol files, previously I found a big mess of em in my temp folder, they must have been using up a huge amount of Bytes.

But most of all I am trying to clean out the stuff I don't need, trim down a little, because I am in the habit of accumulating alot of stuff,.

But most of all My IE has been closing down alot, and I am getting some crashes each day, I think I'll get it fixed,
I am tracking it but its taking time, . . .

I have a thread in, Am I infected forum, Ctfmon Startup Item, and I am sifting and resifting through it, 3 pgs. ending in BSOD Stop errors lessons, its a tangle but I'll get through it, just out there, keep-on-keepin-on.

Thks Much !

Oh, I am just thinking that maybe there's some unecessary interreactions occuring, maybe driver related ??

But if AOL isn't there what is the reason I would not want to clean up the registry ?

The quickest way to take care of your problems may be to back up your important file to a CD or DVD and wipe your hdd and reinstall you OS. What you are doing is time consuming not only for you but for those who are donating their time to help you and may even prove to be detrimental to your computer in the long run.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I concur totally!

What I meant with the Imoega dead issue is it is a dead product.
You cant hardly buy the disks for it anymore.
Why would you want to when the 2 gig jump drives are about 20 bucks?

Format it and reload it. Problem solved!

You never answered my question
Is this internal, parallel or USB?

I have already gotten rid of the Iomega, and have replaced it with an external HD, it is the files associated with the Registry Keys I want to get rid of, I thought I made that clear.

If you are not referring to the External Hardware or the Iomega files, then,
I assume that you're referring to my troubled system, and you think I should save data and wipe it clean.

Yeah, thats a good bet but then we will never really know what the problem was. I was saying that were trying to determine the fix by interpreting the BSOD Stop error messages, no on including MS has any quick fixes for most of these, there are usually multiple reasons for them. Go to any forum and read a BSOD incident and you will see that they are a can of worms.

Besides fixing PC's some of us may be here not only to teach but to learn.

Sorry if there the facts except them or not, I have already deleted one system HD and am making darn good use of it at this time. The internet is chuck full of stories concerning installation problems, including driver misconfigurations and file corruptions.

You never answered my original question
Was the ZIP internal, parallel or USB?
Pretty simple question

As far as interpreting the BSOD's good luck!
Bill Gates doesnt even know that they are!
