Put there by USB Bus controller ? Supposed to help remove USB devices safely (hot unplug). How safe, I wish I know. I do not know the answer(s) to your question(s), but I found THIS. Hope that is the answer.
Question for all the techies please.
My Systray is slim, except for the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon, which I want to remove. It seems to be a WinXP utility and not Win 9x or ME.
Is it safe to remove this icon?
If so, how?
(OK it was 2 questions!).
