Apple Installer will not go away!

Specs: Macintosh
The Apple Installer is on my bottom list of programs and it will not let me shut down my computer. How do I get it deleted from there?

It's installing something, let it finish then you'll be able to shutdown.

Have you right clicked on its icon and used forced quit?

Also look at the options inthat same right click "menu" and use the "remove from dock"?

Agree with phil22 re' allowing the install to continue/complete... However if there's nothing installing... then this may just be a glitch; resolveable as in my #2?

I got rid of it but I forgot what I did. I am an old dude and short term memory is shot, thanks for responding.

No, I bought my 2005 Vespa when I retired from Corrections, it was brand new. I love it!

mmm They were an icon in their day... along with the Lambretta...

Both suffered from one orthopaedic problem... If one had to do an emergency stop, the front end dipped markedly and the rear end tended to swing round... The rider inevitably ended up side stepping of the seat and frequently "b.....deg up a cartilage in one leg (usually the right knee)... The "platform" where one put one's feet was the problem - as one couldn't simply step/stand up as it were as it went askew... More than few owners ended up minus one cartilage (if not both) in time...

The larger competitor the Puch was stable in that regard and more like a motorbike in many respects... It didn't dip and swing as did the Vespa/Lambretta; and the foot support while similar - a platform - seemed to not produce the same cartilage effect...

All three (the first two especially were great to ride around; especially with a suitable "companion" (preferably female of course...) on the rear seat holding on to the driver - nicely...

One advantage of all of them was the cheap running costs (high mpg); and also ease of maintenance - relatively easy to take apart and decoke the engine... Relatively soft suspension meant (still means?) a comfortable ride too.

Thank you for that very detailed report. I might add that I had a Harley 1200 Low Sportster and I almost died on that piece of danger. I was on a two lane highway and it was windy and the wind blew me into the oncoming traffic! The first car had to leave the roadway to avoid me as I could not bring that monster into the lane I left. I was shaking and made it home a mess and parked it and swore I would never ride it again! I sold it and paid off the loan. I would say that all motor cycles and scooters have flaws and are dangerous. I might add that I feel safe on that Vespa but I do not go over the speed limit and generally under 50 MPH around my little town. I would never take it on the expressway. The wind from other cars would wipe me out. America is not Europe where they are used to Vespas. I am more aware thanks to you! I will not sell it off though as prices drop radically here on motorcycles.

I mentioned your words on the danger of Vespas at the Vespa site I frequent and I got a response you might be interested in. This chap said it was BS and that it is the rider not the scooter or motorcycle that is at fault in any accident. I am not surprised by that comment. Most folks fear not when fun is aplenty. You and I both know that. Even though, I will not part with my Vespa but not because I do not put stock in what you said. I am poor, living on Social Security and a small pension and as gas prices soar, I will resort to the Vespa for groceries in the area. Peace be with you. Richard

Your friend may be correct in his comments re' drivers/riders... But there are more than a few orthopaedic surgeons who would comment re' the frequency of the condition I described as per scooters... Having at least one close friend of that era who had that event, and also his g/f - later wife...... I can speak from personal observation. And it was almost epidemic in the late 50-early 60s...

But nonetheless enjoy your Vespa... I was considering one a while back when they re-appeared... They still attract too...and are ideal local run abouts (in light traffic...?).
