I believe your thinking of a U3 USB drive. You can't install u3 software on a regular USB, you must have a U3 USB drive. Here is a link to the U3 site (It might help you understand a bit more)

U3 drives are close to the same price as regular USB drives.

Althought you can't put U3 technology on a regular USB drive, you can beef it up with USB applications and suites such as the PortableApps Suite.

Here's a link to the PortableApps Site:

I installed to USB drive, then removed drive, plugged back in and the PortableApps Menu came up automatically.
Note: It doesn't mean an illegal operation is being performed or breaking the law, it means the programs your running are conflicting with software drives (usually). Here an article that will give you some help on fixing your problem. It would be hard for me to help as the error message "performed an illegal operation" covers a wide range of problems.

A registry program such as Free Windows Registry Repair 1.1 (freeware) could probably fix your problem.
Here is a link to that program:
