I have a new Dell Optiplex 755, pre-loaded with windows XP!  It came with what seemed initially to be zero "crapware" for which I was delighted.  But now I see "Embassy Trust Suite" from Wave Systems Corp. (http://www.wave.com/about/default.asp)
I read that all Dell systems come pre-installed with this software (blurb from Wave below).
Interestingly, the Add/Remove Programs doesn't list this product.
How can I remove this from my machine?   Or should I leave it on?
Thanks.

Blurb from Wave follows:  (http://www.wave.com/about/default.asp)
Waves core products are based around the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), the industry-standard hardware security chip that is included as standard equipment on most enterprise-class PCs shipping today.

from what im reading whilst you can remove it you will find it can remove some functionality such as fingerprint reader functionality. Consider turning TPM off in BIOS and that shoudl leave you alone without the need of removing teh suite

What error message are you getting?
I posted this question a month ago, and I'm sorry but I can't remember if I took the software off or left it on, but I'm no longer getting any error messages.
