Infuriating software!! The hoops you have to jump through to remove this pre-installed garbage from Western Digital disks are a total waste of time! Don't pre-install this garbage on my drives.

If users want this software, they will add it themselves. This kind of garbage pre-installed confuses many people: "What is this CD doing on my computer?" I knew what it was, and was very irritated by the amount of time I had to waste getting it removed. Not to mention that half the instructions were to run software that was hard to find, and then failed.
