    USB Drive

    I have the flash drive below that maybe once a month I move files to an XP machine that is my emergency backup PC in case my main PC blows up etc. Not a big problem but when I boot up main PC (Windows 7 64 bit) it boots normally and then opens this USB drive. I close it out and all is fine but am curious any idea what is causing this, does not do it all the time. Weird huh!

    It sounds like it might be your Autoplay kicking in here upon detection to open the drive.

    Well when I checked autoplay they did not have a listing for USB drive, I only had 2 that I could change 1. Software And Games, I had chosen the "ask me every time" 2. Mixed Content, I had chosen the "Open folder to view files using windows explorer" So I changed both to "take no action" which one is the culprit.

    Well it appears the culprit is "Open folder to view files using windows explorer" changed number 1. and did a reboot and still got USB read out but when Ishut down # 2 it read out was gone.

    Thank You
