Have you tried other USB devices on that PC? Did you try it using other USB ports?

Yes, other USB devices work normally.   I also tried the flash drive in other USB ports, but it did not work.   Since I posted the question, the flash drive has started working again.   All I did was download the LaunchPad installer from the website and when I ran it, it said the drive was password protected.   The LaunchPad then popped up and I entered the password and it now works fine.

Looks like it was a U3 drive, is this correct? If that is the case, should the launchpad not automatically launch when you insert it into a computer, you should be able to open up My Computer. There, you will see a new CD drive appear (if it is password protected, you probably won't see the data drive yet). Double click on the CD drive. Depending on your desktop settings, this will/may trigger the launchpad. If it does not automatically launch, just open the CD drive and double click on the LaunchU3.exe file. It should then open the U3 launchpad and ask for the password. Your solution works too! (haha)

you can try this :
Remove all USB drivers with:     https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/ee-stuff/6853-RENEWUSB.zip      ---> Now reboot and test.
Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" registry values from:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}
