Also when you want to open flash drive you can get the same error message.

If you insert your problem flash into another computer, the problem will reword. And if you format your flash drive and the infection disappears then the problem is solved. It points to the viral case, most likely it is a Trojan that is inside the removable drives but it does not influence the Registry, it just put its files into the drives and prevents them from normal work. Of course you can open your drives using Folders in My computer, but it is not convenient and more than that if you are not going to remove this Trojan, then it is going to destroy your Windows System.
