Hmm. When I put a new flash device into service, at the very least, I
wipe all bundled content from it, and may completely reformat it,
depending on my needs, just as a matter of course.
(I vaguely recall that at one time, if you bought a new wallet, the
card-and-picture section would contain a fill-in-the-blanks ID card and
a picture of Sandra Dee. I'd put bundled software on a flash drive into
that same category.)
