USB Memory Stick – Opens and Closes Relatedly – Help!
We have a few machines (Windows XP, Good Spec, SP3, Virus fee using multi virus tool, Different makes) that open some USB sticks fine, however some (varying sizes) open for about 1 second (explorer view) then close and then open again – this repeats.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Thanks Los0jos for your reply.
This has now (just) been resolved, we tracked this down to a freecom bit of software that was running at startup - Password.exe
This was causing the open and close of the USB drive.
We removed the Password.exe from the startup items and deleted the referenced file and all was resolved.

I hope this may help someone else in the future
