    Another way, restart your computer while holding down the mouse.

    That only happened to me once. It was a CD that claimed you could use it in both Mac and PC.
    My friend, Alex, removed it for me. I didn’t know how he did it at first. I know he used Terminal, b/c that’s what the screen he used to eject it looked like.
    Then, I never asked how he did things. I’m not computer savvy, and I still think it’s easier to understand how to intubate a patient than to grasp computer programming basics.
