U3 Software on Cruzer Micro 4GB

Just a heads up, not a question.

I recently bought a usb drive called "cruzer micro 4GB". I just found
(via a Windows PC) that it comes with crapware called U3 and it doesn't
go away even if you format the damn thing. It's obviously a corporate
replacement for Portable Apps, and it truly sucks.

For Linux, this crapware means that when you insert the damn thing, your
distro will see the USB drive + an external drive. Real genius, eh?

Here are a few links that might be helpful in case you need help with
this "genius" piece of software:


Hope this helps someone else.
