Windows 7: Problem to remove usb storage device

Problem to remove usb storage device

When I click on the systray to remove the usb, there's no list of usb devices as there should be, but "..." instead. And together with this problem, when I click a folder to open, the window is small, it can't automatically maximize. What can be done about it? Any suggestion is appreciated.

timothyhuang:

I can't speak for your USB problem, but I've always had a problem with Windows 7's inability to remember window sizes, settings and positions.

My solution is to use a utility called ShellFolderFix. Once installed and set up, that particular annoyance will go away.

Here's the link and I hope it helps: http://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...ions-size.html

Oops! language barriers never occurred to me- sorry...

Point: Perhaps these utilities should work, world-wide. Maybe that's a huge request?
I'm sure it is...

This problem has happened repeatedly. Sometimes it fixed itself, other times I used Uniblue to clean registry and could fix it. but this time Uniblue doesn't work. The problem came this time after I launched Daemon tools lite and mounted an iso file. Really crazy.

UniBlue, IMHO, is a bad choice.
It seems to be riddled with malware, spyware, etc...
At least that's been my experience and also based on what I've read here and there.

Daemon Tools is the same; it has the same issues.

Your choices of utilities seem to me to be on the dark side...

If I was you, and this is only my opinion, I'd unload Uniblue and Daemon Tools.

If you want a nice, clean little utility to use as a virtual DVD player, try MagicDisc.

I will refrain from commenting on UniBlue since I will only get myself in some sort of trouble by doing so.

Uninstalling Daemon Tools can be a pesky problem at best. I suggest looking into Advanced Uninstaller, a great tool that works on both 64 & 32 bit versions of Windows. It might even get rid of UniBlue, too.

Here's the link to MagicDisc: Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview
And here's the link to Advanced Uninstaller: Advanced Uninstaller PRO - uninstall or remove programs easily using the most powerful uninstaller in the world, for Windows Vista and XP. Free trial available.

Hope this helps,
