Safely Remove Hardware icon is present. Will not display popup "Safe to Remove Hardware"
It's got me stumped. I have the safe to remove icon present in my notification area, both when I hide some icons and when I choose to show all the icons.
When I plug in either a usb flash drive, or an external usb hard drive and I want to eject it, I can right click the icon and see the drive. Then I click Eject (whichever drive is plugged in). I used to get the Safe to Remove Hardware popup, but now I don't.
So far I have been able to remove and reinsert the drives after clicking remove it and have not gotten any error message.
I followed the tips in the tutorial thread: Safely Remove Hardware - Eject Device but nothing seemed to work.
I ran sfc /scannow with no problems detected. I toggled thru the option in the Customize notification options and no resolution.
I would like to uninstall the usb ports in device manager but my computer only has usb ports for keyboard and mouse.
I am running an i3 on an H55 mobo. Windows 7 Pro with SP1
