Maybe this is relevant:
If you do a search on the net for Geek Squad and U3, you should find
their program that will remove the U3 software and features by
reformatting the drive. Here: http://u3.com/uninstall/default.aspx
What the U3 feature really is, is a partition that is treated like a
autorunning CD partition. When you insert the thumb drive, it autoruns
this partition and loads the U3 software. I personally can't stand that
so I use the geeksquad's removal tool. After using the removal tool, the
thumb drive looks and acts just like a regular thumb drive. Also, if you
want to retain the U3 software for later, just back up the partitions
before using the util.
What do people do about the swapfile and other log files that XP
relentlessly writes. Won't that destroy your flash drive in just a few
