Hello everybody,
I have a peculiar problem. When I plug in my USB flashdrive, a "Choose which program to open with" dialog box appears. The drive is listed properly in "My computer" and also I could access the Powerpoint presentation in the drive by Opening powerpoint and the selecting the path. In short I cannot explore the content of the flash drive while otherwise the drive is working properly. Any idea how to correct this


Thanks in advance

Do you get any type of error messages?

When you go into My Computer, what is the drive letter given to the USB?

Thanks for you reply. There was no error message. The drive allocated is Drive :F. The only thing I remember is that I had it scanned it with AVG antivirus and it had reported presence of some trojan virus which it healed.

Thanks once again

Sarath
