Memory stick problem in Windows 7

  Andsome 08:26 17 Nov 2009

On the whole I am very pleased with Windows 7, however a problem has occurred twice when using a memory stick. Everything on the memory stick opens fine, except on two occasions so far. I have twice had problems in opening saved e mails. On those occasions, again, everything else will open fine, so the problem must be in Windows live mail and windows 7. I try to open a stored e mail, and it will not open, giving me a request to nominate a program to use to open the e mail, but none of those on offer will do so. Putting in my back up from Acronis starts everything working again fine. I use Home Premium Windows 7. I use C Cleaner, and from time to time Windows one care live safety scanner. Could either of these cause such a problem.

I can't help, but is this with just one flash drive or all?
When I loaded Win 7 one of my Pen drives wouldn't work at all, but it works fine on a Vista machine.
I have never found out why, my other Pen drives work no problem.

It is with any one of four. Everything worls fine for days, then suddenly saved e mails won't open.
