USB flash drive suddenly inaccessible

When I purchased my 512MB drive, it already had "USB DISK Pro v2.33" .exe file installed, apparently as a security partition to enable password protection. I set it up with a password and used it without problem for two or three months. I plugged it in yesterday, and when I attempted to log in as usual by double-clicking on the UDPV233 icon, a dialog box popped up with this message: "Please insert the device or please run this utility as privileged user." There is a "cancel" button at the bottom of the dialog box, and the typical "X" in the upper right corner, but nothing else which provides a clue as to what I should do. What does this message mean? How can I get through this unnecessary and irritating .exe "door"? How can I eliminate the entire security function on this drive? I don't need to password protect the contents, and I don't want the hassle of having to log on every time I change computers. I considered reformatting, but until I deal with this roadblock, I can't even "see" the remaining 511MB of space on the drive. Thanks in advance for your help
