Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

after you take friut bats advice, if that doesnt sort it! try deleting all your universal usb host controllers from device manager and rebooting to let them install all nice and fresh!

This looks like a flaw in the Autoplay software This tool purports to fix them - it's from a MS MVP (Most Valued Professional)
