Make sure you have Service Pack 1 at least installed on your PC.

I would probably put your Windows CD back in the DVD drive and do a repair.

I recently did a complete format, about 1 month ago and it was doing it before that.

i have seen this caused by a short in the usb hub. see if the sticks work in other comptuers, then if/when they do, try them in every port on your computer.
