There is no other way that I know of to remove Bluebirds from the drives other then this fix.
I don't have any systems here with Vista 64 that I could test with, but I would think the tool would run under Vista 64, you may need to run it as Administrator for it to work.
That is why I went through so much trouble to get this fix from LG, you had 3 of them, I have over 50 most of which were going to military customers who don't like extra bits of software hanging around in their systems

I ran it on Windows 7 x64 without an issue. This will not remove software that has already been installed...for that, go to msconfig. This will just stop the pop ups from the firmware to install whenever the drive is closed.
On a side note, the removal tool worked great! Thanks for this.

Thank you, and I agree. As a reseller I was shocked to discover we were selling PC's with this crap embedded in it. Fortunately our system builder caught it immediately. We'll no longer be carrying LG drives until they discontinue this practice, and perhaps will being carrying an alternative. This is a disgusting practice and I'm really disappointed in LG.

For those who are complaining that it isn't working. It didn't work for me either at first. I discovered that it does nothing while the "bluebird" image is loaded for Windows to see. In other words, either eject the tray and leave it open or place a disc in the drive before running. Afterwards it should not show up when the tray is closed and empty.

Your solution worked. I have previously stuck with Lite-On/PLDS, ASUS, and sometimes Samsung, but found this cheap on Newegg and bought it. Glad I caught it before it ended up in the customer's hands! Curses, LG, what were you thinking?
