Windows 7: Remove Launch Pad from Geek Squad Flash drive?

Remove Launch Pad from Geek Squad Flash drive?

Is there a way to get this Launch Pad off this Geek Squad Flash Drive ? Simply formatting it doesn`t work. I want it like any other flash drive with just 1 partition. I just threw Ubuntu on it, that`s why you`ll see unallocated space ( windows doesn`t recognize it of course ) Disk 6 and cd-rom 2 are both the flash drive. I have the launchpad saved so I can put it back on if I want to later. Any suggestions, maybe PW ?

I ran Ubuntu from 1 of my pc`s fine with it but not 2 others, I think the launchpad is messing with it.

I don`t think it`s humanly possible, It must be a permanent part of it or something.

Oh well, no big deal :)

I`ve always hated Ubuntu anyway

How to Delete U3 Program for Geek Squad Flash Drive |

I have never bought a "Geek Squad" flash drive, but I've gotten a few SanDisk devices with the U3 stuff. It has been a while, but I was able to remove it.

I don't know whether this will help with your device, but here's another option:
