    I recently bought a 2 GB Thumb drive (U3 from PQI). The software on it is driving me nuts. I have tried deleting it, formatting the drive, but it always comes back. Is there a trick, utility, or something out there to help me out? Any input would be appreciated.

    Nope, the U3 part is not erasable.

    I always remove that junk. Does anyone really use it? It's certainly more difficult to manage files with it than without it.

    Thanks to all. The drive is now empty. I don't mind the disk space usage, but having that program pop up every time I plugged it in was annoying. And, come to think of it, I do mind the disk space usage. I apparently could have disabled it on this computer by altering the autorun status, but that doesn't help me on the next computer I plug it into. Thanks again.

    Learn something every day. I didn't realize that you could uninstall the U3 capability. ;)
