I have a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 1gb as well as a Memorex 1gb flash drive and when I connect them to my computer and double click on them in the Windows Explorer pane that shows icons for the devices, I get the following error:

Windows cannot find 'copy.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

I click ok and nothing happens. I can, however, click on the devices in the tree view and access my files, as well as going File>open in any program. This is more of an annoyance than anything, as I am able to access my files in all manners EXCEPT the one area of Explorer. Can anyone give me some insight on this error?

This is usually the sign of an infection. Has your anti-virus located and removed any trojans lately?
