What keys are you worried about? Is that a security concern?

The brute force approach would be to take a restore point before plugging it, and roll back to it once done, it should theoretically revert any changes made.

However, I don't think there is too much to worry about. What I'm sure it installs is the driver needed to access the drive, which might reveal details about its hardware, but nothing else. File lists and contents reside only in memory, which is cleared after you unplug, and completely deleted after reboot, I doubt there are any significant traces of it anywhere in Windows.
