My PC freezes everytime I insert my USB flash drive

Hi experts, I would like to know why is my computer(s) freezes whenever I plug in my flash drive?  This only happens on my 2 computers at home, but when I used this flash drive at work, it reads all the data with no problem.  Is it because I don't have enough RAM? My two computers only have 1GB each.  

On one of my computer Performance Tab under the Task Manager shows the Physical Memory shows Total 1038412, Available 631432, System Cache 480888.  The Commit Charge is Total 302100, Limit 21418924, Peak 405240.  Kernel is Total 70828, Paged 54944, Nonpaged 15884.  I am currently running just one application which is the Internet.  I have a Pentium 4 CPU 2.4 GHZ and .99 Gb RAM.  I increased my paging size to 20000mb, but still doing the same.  The flash drive that I am using is SanDisk Micro cruizer 1.0GB.  Please advise, thanks.
