External USB Hard Drives Issue

Hopefully someone can tell me what is going on. I have installed Windows 7 RTM from TEchnet and activated it with a key. Just lately however when I start my computer after it has been turned off windows loads but the USB hard drives "reinstall" themselves and I get a dialog box for both of them asking what I want to do with the files. This is not serious i know but it is annoying so any help would be appreciated.
