You did not say clearly whether the multiple systems restarted too, when you connected the pen drive on them. If they did restart, then problem is with the pen drive. As you have not formatted the drive yet, then something on that drive might be causing the problem. Or, it can be that something has gone wrong with the pen drive itself.

This could also be a driver problem. You may try and reinstall the effected driver. In your case its probably your usb or port driver. Worth a look.

Free software for Driver support can be found on Gizmo's site: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best...ver-backup.htm

Yes it restarted on multiple pc's. The problem is with pen drive. Something on it is making it restart.

WDHPR i don't think it's driver problem. It might be the pendrive is damaged.

Thumbs up

If you think that the pendrive has a virus, then disable autorun on XP and try inserting it.
Vista and Windows 7 systems, by default replace autorun by a small window asking you what to do.

You may also check Blue Screen view http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html . This will show you what the blue screen said.
Copy and post here so that others may have a better idea.

It might be worth trying plugging your pendrive into something running Linux. You can download a Live CD .iso of a distro like Ubuntu burn it to a CD and just boot from the CD. Once the OS has loaded into memory (it will take a while, but does not install anything to your hard drive) plug in the pendrive, and Linux will automatically try to open a folder for it on screen, so you don't even have to know how to use Linux. Wait for a minute to see if it can open it. Linux is usually not as picky about filing system errors as Windows is.

That's a very good suggestion Ritho. I would suggest Puppy Linux for that. The ISO is just 104 MB. I had tried it a few days ago. I had plugged in my pen drive, and Puppy Linux had detected it instantly. As Ritho suggested, the pen drive should not pose a problem on a Linux OS. If it does, then surely the pen drive has problem, and should be formatted... if that can be done.

I have to wonder if the USB stick has malware which is trying to auto-infect the host PC and crashes it in the process. Plenty of malware piggybacks on autorun.inf, but the process could be going wrong on this one.
You not being able to access Panda Security is setting off warnings in my mind; can you access, say, the F-Secure web site (http://www.f-secure.com/)? How about Avira (http://www.avira.com/) and Avast (http://www.avast.com/)? If those three sites are unavailable as well, you've almost certainly got some malware on your system.
