  1. I went to the link posted and it seemed to be nothing more than advertisements of possiblew places to purchase a memorex flash drive.

    6 days of waiting & counting?

    As risky and distasteful as it sounds, those flash drives are tied down with an OS, and can be freed by following the "uninstall" link when launched from the OS running on the fllash drive.

    U3 Lauchpad was one such company. Uninstalling without the flash drive present would have violated the license agreement & forever would leave the flash drive boogered.

    remove U3, by deleting the U3 partition and reformatting the drive with 1 partition.
