    I was playing around with a .mac trial account and got the iDisk icon on my desktop. When I try to drag it to the trash bin the trash bin changes and says eject, but nothing happens when I release the mouse. It seems that there is no way for me to delete this icon. If anyone knows how I can remove it I would be very appreciative.

    btw...I was not very impressed with .mac.

    System Preferences -> iDisk ->Advanced -> turn off syncing and then you can get rid of the icon on desktop.

    What do you mean by sync features? iDisk syncing or syncing in general (i.e. iCal and Address Book)?

    REMOVE IDISK all of it!

    Recently Ir reinstalled my macbook because of a buch of messed up junk after I ran disk utility. Then I found out it was OK, anyway. I notice now that I have the old idisk icon. I know how to get rid of the icon(see above) BUT its still in GO/Idisk. I want it gone. I cant logon. I see no way to get rid of it except to pay for another year.That cant be right. Aeverything is greyed out. I am unable to change anything on Sys prefs, Mobilme/Idisk. I tried resetting syncs on isync.app. Didnt help. Really getting flustered with this thing. ALSO I no longer have my Macbook icon on sidebar. Any ideas? thanks

    iDisk

    Go to System prefs Mac.

    If you have a username and password still in the frame, delete them and then restart.
    Worked for me and sanity returns
