able to remove it, except by not using any USB device. However, you can hide it. But why is that icon a problem ? It is actually for your own good - it reminds and help you to remove the USB hardware safely so that you do not mess up things and lose data, especially for storage devices.

I have 2 36 GB Raptors installed in a RAID 0 array and that's what the icon refers to.

that's strange. There is no way for you to "remove" the Raptors, so that icon is useless. What happens if you used the icon to remove the Raptors (HD ?) ?

Here is a [url=[/url. Put +"Raptor"+"Safely Remove haredware" into Google for more. It seems that the only solution is to hide the icon and forget about it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
