Should I remove "Embassy Trust Suite" from Wave, installed on my new Dell Optiplex?

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.
