You can move all the flash drive files that you want to keep to your computer, then format the flash drive to get rid of all the files you want deleted, then move the saved files back from your computer to the flash drive.

Btw if you don't have something like this you can use glary undelete to restore deleted files. It has saved me several times already since installing it recently. http://www.glaryutilities.com/

You can find any post you make by looking in the upper right corner where your name is, and using the pulldown choose My Content.

Hi M332 -
Is there a way to download this without the ASK toolbar being added or do you need to uninstall the toolbar after installing -
It is listed as part of the EULA that ASK must be installed -

Thank You -

Sorry - I thought you were running a Japanese Language version - didn't realize it was foreign to you too :)

Can you open disk management, right-click on the usb drive and format it?

Nok, I don't remember that being a part of the install but for me installs always allow options to be unchecked and I always choose custom install btw instead of express, that way I know everything that is going on step by step. I don't know since I never use express install but it may not give you the option to uncheck the toolbar that way so if you haven't tried the custom install option then do that and see if it helps.

How do i format it?


Click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop. Right click on the usb drive then click Format. Make sure you have the usb files that you want to keep backed up to your computer first since the format will delete them from the drive. That way you can transfer the files from the computer back to the usb drive after it is formatted.

Many of us have deleted numerous unwanted add-ons multiple times, it is not a big deal! The fellows that develop these helpful programs need a little help with income so the link up with the big guys! Use REVO uninstaller it will do a very nice job of removing any unwanted items.

Nok are you in the custom install option like I recommended or the express install option? I got it to install without any other option added so I'm not understanding why you're having this problem. I guess it could have been a different installer than the one you got. My installer is vI.6.0.162 and is 3,276kb. If there is any other option before the screen that you posted then try it instead.
