I recently had a virus issue that was resolved in this very forum (thank you!!!). I did do a system recovery as I had a hard crash and could not come up. THings are back up now and working fine other than I still have icons and shortcuts to programs that apparently are no longer on my PC. I just re-install them and things are good. I digress....shortly after my system restore, I started noticing that when I used the USB thumbdive I have been using to perform all of the needed tasks requested by the helpful person at Bleeping Computers, my system freezes and requires a manual reboot. If I leave the USB device plugged in during reboot, the screen just stays black and nothing happens. If I remove the devise prio tpo reboot, everything boots up normally. So far this is happening with my USB thumbdrive and my external hard drive. I have tested both devices in my laptop and they both work perfectly. I may have to turn down some freelance video work if I can't get this situated quickly.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
