Flash Drives not being recognized on laptop

By luv2bike2 ·
HP Pavilion Entertainment PC, Windows XP, Service pack 3, all ms updates are installed.

no matter what Flash drive is plugged into the laptop, the laptop does not recognize it. you can plug the flash drives into any other pc/laptop and it is recognized.

Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, Glary Utilites and McAfee Anti-Virus software have been runned on the laptop and it is clean, finally - yes there were some issues all but this issue has been cleared up and all the programs come up empty when it comes to any spyware/malware/adware/viruses.

What else can be the cause as to why the Flash drive is not recognized?

Thank you for getting back so quickly.

Right now i am doing a defrag on the laptop, in safe mode so i can not get to the internet. I am hoping this will fix the problem. I will get back to you with the results, it maybe tomorrow as it is also almost time to leave work.

Thanks again.
