Removable Storage Service Disabled

Every time my server reboots the removable storage service is set to disable.

I have tried setting it to automatic but after the reboot it switches back to disabled.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Check whether you have a GPO that changes this mode.

I have searched for a group policy but cant find anything relating to the cause of my problem.

i have also looked in  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR
and the start Dword value is already set  to 3.

Any further suggestions are very welcome as im scratching my head with this one.

Thanks in advance.
