Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
Seems to be your problem.
Try this from MS. It's targeted for PC Card problems, but describes yours perfectly anyway:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click System (if the System icon is not displayed in Control Panel, click the View all Control Panel icons link on the left side of Control Panel).
2. On the Device Manager tab, click the plus sign (+) next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
3. Click USB Host Controller, and then click the Properties button.
4. On the Resources tab, click to clear the Use Automatic Settings check box.
5. Choose a basic configuration from the list that does not cause device(s) to appear in the Conflicting Device List, and then click OK.
6. You may receive a warning message that indicates that Plug and Play functionality is limited by forcing a specific configuration. Click Yes to continue.
7. Click Close.
8. Restart your computer.
It seems the reason is that when you plug the drive in, the IRQ's of devices are 'rebalanced', causing the crash.

This can be a problem with the USB port of that computer, try first connecting it on a different USB port of that computer so we can also check if this is a problem with that particular port only, and if its still having the same problem we now need to check the USB port of your computer under device manager... Under device manager check for the USB device and see if there's any exclamation mark if there is you right click it and select update driver and follow the wizard to do a online search for updated driver....

The first thing to try is to power down the PC and remove the USB key. Then disconnect the mains lead for 15mins or so. (with a laptop remove the battery.) Restart the PC and test. If this does not solve the problem then proceed as follows:
Start by unplugging all your USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software (printers scanners etc.). Next, boot up into safe mode(prees F8 just before Windows begins to load) and go to Device Manager (MyComputer- properties - Device Manager). When you are in Device Manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this as so;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
You can then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Plug your USB devices back in. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in. Last, try your USB key.
Let me know how you get on!
