If you’re like me and hate the U3 ‘feature’ of some modern USB drives, simply uninstall it. I’ve been wanting to remove it for quite awhile, but have never researched how to do it, that is until today. And it was surprisingly easy. Just visit
http://u3.com/uninstall/ and follow the prompts to download the uninstaller. You will lose all data on the drive in this process so make sure to back up anything important. Also, I’m guessing this is a Windows only option. I don’t know what Mac or Linux users are suppose to do. If you do, please share in the comments.
